Helen of Hugs 'n' Kisses is very generously organising a wonderful stitching collaboration called 'Stitchers' Angel'. She has arranged for seven stitchery designers to release a free pattern each week for seven weeks. Helen released the first pattern, a sweet Armchair Caddy which you can download here. Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches provided the pattern for this week, the delightful 'Blue Wren's Nest Tote' which you can download here. You can keep up with everyone's progress & add your own creations at the Stitchers' Angel Flickr group here. I, of course, have intentions of making them all - yeah, yeah, like that's going to happen! But I have started Natalie's blue wrens:
The bag tutorial mentioned in this post is next on my 'to do' list. Thank you to all the lovely girls who left wonderful suggestions for a name for my bag. I almost went for 'The Bread & Butter Bag' from Liz - very clever! But after much agonising I think I am going to call it 'The Blossie Bag' as the very first of these bags were made for my daughters (aka Blossie #1 and Blossie #2). I'm hoping to have the tutorial up today, but you just never know what will come along to muck up my plans in the land of Bloom!
