Today, just take time to smell the roses,
enjoy those little things………………….Bernard Kelvin Clive

I have been stitching violets for myself and pink roses for Annette of California Stitcher, Annette has been kindly making for me another of her fab pouches, this time to match my violet collection of needlework accessories. The embroidery on my piece is done and it is now gone to a friend to be made up, very necessary as I have a hate relationship with my sewing machine and I am defeated when I cannot do all a project by hand stitching. The pink roses are to match the toblerone set I sent to Annette for Christmas.
I have also been stitching some embroidered clips to keep balls of perle thread tidy, very easy to make and also ideal for gifts for friends I have put the" how to" make them information on my other blog other side of the mountain and have announced a give away to mark Valentines day over there  Leave a message there if you are interested in going in the draw ( not on this blog)

Beautiful violets and roses!

My sewing machine scares me. I use it to finish cross stitch items occasionally, but am at a loss as to what else to do with it! :-)
