About Me

My photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Morning walk - Linear Park

A friend asked me if I could make her a coin purse so after a bit of fiddling and drawing this is what I came up with.
The one on the right is my first attempt.

This was my second attempt with a stitchery from Cinderberry Stitches on the side.

This morning saw me up early to beat the heat.
A walk along the Linear Park.
People can agist their horses along the river.

Your purses are lovely Leanne. I love your photos too - they are gorgeous. Do you have any of your Jack Russells? I remember seeing one where it was hanging out of its basket with the caption "I'm not comfortable". I still laugh to myself whenever I think of that pic as we had an almost identical one with our sadly departed pooch! Jill x

Very cute purses love the stitchery. As you can see I am alive and kicking. Finished another block of Tail feathers in hospital and a joseph block. Nothing sewn today though as I am recovering from the drive home...

You live in such a lovely country, Leanne!
Thank you for sharing the great pictures. I actually see a 'lepelaar' the bird with a round beak. 'lepel' = spoon in Dutch.
