Stitching And Dolly...


I love making things out of scraps of nothingness.
There is a huge sense of happiness when a finished item emerges from my box of tut.
This needle case was made from a fragment of beautifully soft vintage quilt from Hope and Elvis and tiny pieces of fabric.
Whenever I'm making something like this, Dolly's 'Coat Of Many Colours' always plays in my head.
I ruddy love that song, makes me cry every time!
Happy weekend wishes y'all!

    1. I've collected Sylvac bunnies or any bunnies of that style since I was a teenager.....I have saved many a forlorn, chipped unloved rabbit! X

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
