Embroidery days: Sewing tote - part one

While my poor ole' blog has been sliding into oblivion during an episode of other-things-happening, perhaps now is the perfect time to resurrect some past dabbles in stitchery.

Hopefully this little journey over the next few posts will pick me up and bring me full circle again with my creative play.

We call these black-eyed-susans here (know in the U.S. it's a rudbekia reference).

Botanical: Thunbergia alata, a fine growing vine, like this photo taken alongside a cycle-path at Budgewoi, Central Coast, N.S.W.

Part Two with remaining embroidered pockets will make for the next post to come.

ooooh! Carole's BACK! Beautiful stitchery (and photography!) That bag is a treasure with all the pockets so superbly decorated. I do adore the pink flowers with french knots on the petals and that delicate pale green center. Yummy!

I love the little bees and the spider with its web! Really sweet!
