I received my Pendibuille....

.........and isn't it lovely, Thankyou so much Pom, I love it!!


Pom told me she put bells on it to bring the summer to me.












In answer to the question on whether I hand stitch or use the sewing machine for my finishes, I have to say for the majority its hand-stitching, I'm OK with the machine for larger things but when they are smaller - even ornament sized I tend to get real wavy lines when I sew LOL!! - looks like I was drunk when I stitched it, so I gave up with that idea and do them by hand its much quicker for me that way.

My new style looking blog is courtesy of my lil' sis Helen ( Lena-Lou ), she was feeling very creative and offered to change my style, which I of course said Yes too, in fact snapped her hand off, for her to do it and I think its lovely, very gardening style which is just me to a T. I love how she has done hers too very seasidey.

Love the new garden theme to your blog!!

Carol said...

Wow, that is pretty - and very unique!

You absolutely made my day when I read that you do a lot of finishing by hand! I have felt lost because I have no sewing machine. Your comment has inspired me, though, not to let that get in the way!

Perhaps if you have a small but not too small a drink before you use the machine on smalls, you will get rid of the wavy line? What a pretty thing to receive in the mail, Su. Thanks for sharing.

I love the new look of your blog, Su. And how about that pendibu-thingie. Sorry, but what does that mean? And how are they made? Could you, perhaps, give us a how-to lesson, like you did a few months ago with the ribbon finishing? I'm off to visit your sis now, and admire her new look!
