Summer Stitching

This is not a good time of year to stitch.  It is hot and sticky and the outdoors keeps calling.  But I have been experimenting with a new zippered bag.  I am calling this one "a good idea at the time!'.  It seemed a good idea to do the stitching but I had no clear plan of what I would do with it.  Some pieces are samples on which I tested ideas others are for projects that didn't work out.  Now I have come up with a bag design in which I can use them all, or some of them anyway.

I am working on making a pattern and tutorial that I will put up later.

Oh dear, "It seemed a good idea at the time" is such a familiar phrase! But you've turned this one to a good use!


It is a very nice design and the embroidered panel looks good in the middle.

I am so glad that I have found a way to use these pieces of embroidery.
