It seemed like a good idea

to take my embroidery samples ...

and make them into something useful, like this zippered pouch.
However, now I'm not so sure I want to use this second piece of stitchery that way - or even if I like the fabrics I've put with it.
Until I sort it out, this remains in my "works in progress" bin. I'd like to tell you that it's the only WIP in that bin. Ahem.
*Due to my camera breakdown, I am unable to post my recently completed projects and that's the reason behind me sharing my WIPs with you. Please tell me that I'm not the only one that has more than one project on the go and that some of your projects get a "rest period" between being initiated and finished. ;o)


  1. For what it's worth, I really like the little bag and I like the green you chose and think it would be a nice bag too. I would never have thought to do something like that.

  2. one project at a time? why would one ever do that??? :)

  3. I won’t reveal my number of projects I’m working on, they are numerous...
    I love the little blue purse. I think the delicate and lovely green stitchery needs some more quiet fabrics. The bold plaids might be a bit too much.

  4. I like the green too.. the stitchery and fabric work well together..
    and we dont count UFOs.. I pull ten out of the tub and work on those for a wee while, 'til I get bored yet again.. and find something else to work on!

    who did spreadsheet her UFO's last year and nearly fainted.

  5. I totally agree with Amandajean:)))
    If I have the time, I'll try to sort all my WIPs out. Hmmm, now I'm not so sure if I really should do that...
    The little blue bag is my favorite! Your stitchery is lovely!

  6. Lovely stitching. How about trying the panels with some plain contrasting fabric? You may not want to take a tip from someone who knows absolutely nothing about needlework! x

  7. Ooh, I love embroidery. I used to do quite a bit of it, a million years ago in high school. Now that all my little ones have flown the nest, I think I'll try my hand at it again. Yours is really nice, and you've mixed it with a bit of quilting technique, which I like.

  8. I think the greens work well with the embroidery and it would make a great bag! See you later. Love Nicola

  9. Both very clever ways of using your stitcheries. Very pretty!

  10. what BEAUTIFUL little bags! i must say, your ingenuity and creativity astound me. wow! I love those greens with the queen anne's lace (is that what they are?) flowers. but can totally see it with just muted tones of cream and beige too.
    and just so you know, there's a HUGE celebration around here when i actually FINISH something. i think that's pretty normal.

  11. I've lost count of all the WIP I have on the go... were we only supposed to have one? lol!

  12. How could anyone ever stop at just one project??? I can't even count how many I must have going.

    I really like the green project. I like the fabrics and the embroidery.

  13. Oh my, are you kidding?
    Some of the items in my WIP pile have been there for 2 years!

    Its that ADCD (Attention Deficit Crafting Disorder). I just can't stay focused on long term projects. Why do think I don't know how to quilt? LOL

    Kimberly :)

  14. LOL I'd be a little worried if that were the ONLY thing in your WIP basket! Mine is near to toppling over :)

  15. Oh my goodness. I can't even count the number of works in progress patiently waiting for me to finish. I thought that was normal. Thanks for sharing your lovely work! Joyce in Iowa


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
