    As this is St.Paddy's day I'll show you some more stuff....

    ....and that is a tote I made as a pressie
    for my very dear friend Sue in California, her roots are Irish!







    I made her a reversible place mat as well





    This was a year ago and I was a brand new quilter, - my very first pinwheel I
    made into a new pincushion. LOL

    Hugs from Eva Mari

    PS: The other tote was for my DD, - tried out both a way of making a cute pocket
    + a mix of decorative seam + hand embroidery.

    A stash must be carefully and constantly built. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

          Thank you so very much for your kind remarks, ladies! Hugs!
          The lining fabric for Sue's tote was a design I made and had printed at Spoonflower, btw.

                Those bags are absolutely adorable. Since I work at a greenhouse, everyone would love them.

                    You most certainly have the gift of making perfectly adorable gifts. Um, don't forget I'm a long lost distant kin with a birthday in December . . .

                      Wonderful tote! I enjoyed the embroidered flowers very much. That is a nice idea, but the fabric you used was inviting for those sunflowers.

                        Love it--especially the embroidery. Might I ask what machine you used--was that a stitch on your machine?

                              I am so encouraged by all your positive remarks! Thanks! I used my mechanical Janome:
                              stems and "leaves" are two different threads in the needle. The sunflower heads are handembroidered:
                              lazy daisy and french knots, - again more colors than one.
