Happy Dance


I have finished my stitching and all the finishing work on the Maison de Brodeuse (House of the Embroiderer)by Au fil des Reves, this was a delight to do and I completed my first 'Bourse' and I know it won't be my last.



This is the inside of the bourse.

This is the pinkeeper and the needlebook front.




This is the pinkeeper and needlebook back



This is the inside of the needlebook which includes the scissor pocket. The wee button fob I made as well as it was part of the instructions in the kit. Its all stitched on 32ct linen using 1 strand of silk thread, the majority of the stitching is 2/2 but some parts are 1/1.

Hi Suzie, just found your blog and your work is just lovely. whre abouts in the UK are you? I have just moved to West Sussex, near Bognor Regis, after living in Alton in Hampshire for 30 years. I am not settling in very well and think we might move back. No good living in a nice area if you dont have your family and friends!!!!
Do you belong to the UK Sampler Guild? I have been a member for 3 years and just love the get togethers we have - so inspiring and the enabling is terrible!!LOL
Anyway. Lovely to see your work.

Ohmigosh, Su, I just love this! I've seen it on some French blogs, but it's different when I can actually read the accompanying text! ;-)

This isn't any old happy dance, Su, this is a happy waltz! It looks just perfect. I've been drooling over this project myself. Aren't the French at designing these sorts of things?

Sorry for the 'multi comment', but I'm just catching up on your blog are weeks away, and thought it'd be easier this way ... just wanted to say your JN Pearl Orchid looks absolutely perfect in that box top :) On a sadder note, I was so sorry to hear about poor Floozi - I feel for you very much {{hugs}}. But on a brighter note, I want to say your stitchers bourse and accessories is absolutely stunning!! What a fantastic achievement - it all looks wonderful! :D Way to go :D
