ANOTHER BAG AND OOOOH

Suzanne made this fabulous block from a book she bought from Pat's stash, there was no pattern for it, but she worked it out and just look, isn't it fabulous; rather than waste it, she has turned it into a very smart bag for a friend of hers...



Suzanne 'modelling' the bag -
whoar just look at the background though...



the other side of the bag...



the inside of the bag which is totally reversible of course,
her friend likes gardening so the fabrics relate to that.



Well done Suzanne, it turned out just great.

***********************************************

Now we come to the OOOOH bit
As you know I am going on a class at Bramble Patch with Di on Saturday, to learn how to use the Embellisher machine I had for my birthday. I have been collecting bits and pieces to take along to use and Maggi has sent me some wonderful bits also - see a previous post -
I was having a look on Ebay the other night, and discovered these, now you are going to be in for a treat, they beat the postal strike hooray, I just keep getting them out of the bag and stroking them, I cannot believe how soft this is, but the colours, OOOH, gorgeous, I am so pleased with them I shall definitely go back for more from this lady, who was very quick with the service and is really friendly. She is in Germany, but posts all over the world I believe. Here are links for her eBay shop and her Blog.



Enjoy



Yummy colours...

Gorgeous...

Open it out...


Spread the fibres out...


How fabulous is this...


again, opened out...

fabulous shades in there - some strands of my voile has got into the picture,
they did not come with these, my error...

so many of them...



I just can't wait to use these, although they are just beautiful as they are, I will use them and hope I do them justice. I am absolutely thrilled with them...can you tell?
***************************************************

These curly natural shade bits came from someone else, in this country.
I was surprised how much was in the bag tell the truth, hope I find a use for these...



Roll on Saturday

Sorry about the changing address for the blog -- I'd delayed doing if for a while just because I knew it would be a pain for people.

Can't wait to see what you do with the embellisher.
