One finished and another one started!



It's such a wonderful feeling to complete a project, and at this stage I'm usually taking a quick photo and wrapping it up for the quick delivery to a friend or family member. So it feels kinda strange to have a finished creation still sat on my desk (or on my outdoor shrubs!) to admire!!


This little project is called The Sew Thoughtful Dilly Bag and was designed by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs. It appeared in Homespun (No 45, Vol 8.2) magazine quite a while ago and has been on my To-Do list for ages.




Isn't the pin-cushion keyring a wonderful idea? I've never seen one like it before and it was such a pleasure to make.


Bronwyn's stitcheries are so cute! Even the inside of the needle case has little critters decorating it... just one of those extra touches that are always so evident in her designs.

If you are a lover of Homespun magazine and of Bronwyn Hayes, check out this link for a cushion pattern generously offered by Homespun in addition to the version printed in the mag. If you follow the link you will also see a text box on the right-hand side of the project detail entitled "Previous Homespun projects" - there are quite a few others to choose from! I thought this info might be useful for you lovely crafters on the other side of the pond, where it is difficult to get hold of Aussie magazines!

Right! Time now to give you a glimpse of my next creation! The painting element is complete, but the sewing and detail are yet to be "performed". I hope to show you the end result some time soon!


In the meantime I wish you all a very happy and enjoyable Easter weekend!

Warm wishes! Vikki x

Red Brolly is one of my favourites and I wish that I wouldn't get distracted so often and actually complete some more of them. I love what you have done it is just beautiful! The colours are gorgeous. I just came today so I had a good look around and enjoyed reading. Even had a bit of a laugh. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Vikki, I found your blog through Tozz's blog, I'm sure you know how it goes, follow the chain. Anyway I just wanted to say , what a stunning dilly bag, just gorgeous. Handmade mags aren't that easy to fin in the US, but I keep my eye out for them.
