Wednesday Stitching

Shirley W showed us these lovely little knitted items she had finished off over the last week. This little mauve purse holds a handmade soap and is decorated with a lovely flower. The flower brooch is really cute too. Can you see Shirley's blackwork in the background?

And she has also made this fabulous little wrist pincushion - knitted up to look like a watch! How handy is that? I'm off for a patchwork and stitching retreat weekend with 65 ladies a little way north of here! Leanne Beasley and Rosalie Quinlan are teaching and I'm going to really enjoy a relaxing weekend of stitching up whatever they have on offer!! Hope to show you some lovely photos when I return! Enjoy your weekend - whatever you may be doing!
