Our Spring garden and … a finish :o)!!

It’s been lovely weekend here in Brissy, the Spring weather has been nothing short of glorious :o). Have a look at how my garden is ‘Springing’ into season ;o) …

Here’s Bear doing a bit of gardening (yep, still in her jammies!!!) with a little help from Bundy ;o) …

We even had a visitor who came to sunbake and soak up the warmth …September 2011 058 AND I managed to do some stitching – Yay, another finish for September :o)!!! This is a new sample of my “Binder Carry-all”.September 2011 078I used some gawjus ‘Luna Notte’ fabrics for the dresden plates and sweet little applique’d butterflies. Aren’t the colours stunning??!!

There are some pretty rosebuds and leaves embroidered down the spine, I used Cottage Garden Threads for those, I just love the variegations – so pretty.

It has pockets on the inside when it’s opened – 3 small ones on the left side and one wide one on the right. Plus a pocketed section to slip onto the the 4 rings to carry your project …

I’ve been wanting to make another one of these for a while now and I’m chuffed with how this one has turned out, I love the brighter colours :o).

Hope you’ve had a terrific weekend too :o)!!!

Just love your new version of your binder cover - so fresh, such great fabrics and the floral spine, gorgeous. Now you have put me to shame - your garden is looking great and the shots of bear out there gardening with her superviser are really quite cute. I had a peep at my garden now that Spring is here, mmmm lots of weeds : (
