Broderie

I love Queen Anne's Lace....even though it is considered a weed, I let it alone wherever it grows in my yard.



I won a gorgeous prize in the drawings that were held at the end of Stephanie's String Challenge. She had many great prizes that were donated by fellow stitchers and groups. This is what I won from Linda....it is beautiful and I will carry my hand sewing/embroidery supplies in it proudly.

I arranged the pictures so it would show what it looks like as it is opened.



It has a needle "heart", tapemeasure ribbon, and zippered pouch.















Little pockets, a scissors holder....a lot to offer and yet folds compact.
Thank you Linda for your generosity!

Love the Queen Anne's lace...I always want to stop and pick some as I drive down the road and see it growing in the ditch. Wonderful prize you won!

Queen Anne's Lace is so very pretty. The lace part of the name is so appropriate. I do remember getting chiggers from playing in a field of it though!!!!! Ugh! The little case is amazing!

Ditto on the Queen Anne's lace! Did you ever add food coloring to the water in the vase and watch the flower transform from white to whatever color you added? Kid fun! I am also excited the 'cornflowers' are blooming. Guess they are called 'chickory' officially? Nice prize you won!!
