flower embroidery

NO this is NOT my work, but I have to show you what my No 4 SIL Linda does (I have 4 all clever in some way).  She does free hand machine embroidery and makes flowers and pictures and the most beautiful handbags.  Aren't these just gorgeous, there is no pattern and she just works her machine until happy with the result, I am in awe with her creativity and all with a normal sewing machine.

Now a little card I did last week as I have a little spare minute today to blog.
The image is by Shellysimages.co I coloured it in PS and the papers are Spring Meadow by Jannisscrapdesigns, I was asked to do a plainish card for an 85 yearold to give to her DIL and it had to bo done by the next day. It was well received I am pleased to say.

Hope you are all enjoying the Late Summer Bank Holiday, it's a shame the weather hasn't been too good, but at least hasn't been raining here in this part of Wales for a change :)
