Say it with flowers

Showtime!

Yes, it is showtime, time to Shower with Flowers,
let's start with thanking our grande dame Mme Samm,
great organizer of bloghops
and
her dear righthand in this bloghop,
our cheerleader
for making this fun possible:
Thank you, sweet ladies!
These two together in one hop promises
For this bloghop I used patterns or ideas that were on my wishlist for a very long time, it helped shorten my list, how lucky can a girl get?

My first project is a bag: I was so busy looking at fabric and colors
that I forgot *Ü* to check for flowers,  well there are flowers on it, but it is not a shower
but  you find a whole bunch of violets inside!

 
The bag has already been out with me,
flowery or not, I liked using it.
The pattern comes from the book 
21 Sensational Patchwork Bags
written by Sue Briscoe. 
I have the Dutch translation.

Then I made a little project that was on my list for years! It was presented in 
2008 already!
It's a free pattern of Arlettes' blog
Polka Dot Pineapple
I used another leafs pattern,
this comes from Melissas' blog 
Kind a wonderful -
Pink Paper Peppermints



I loved making this cute daisy tee-pincushion.
Made the picture on the one
 sunny afternoon
we had this week, I was so busy 
with the bloghop project
I almost did not notice - oops!
                                     




 

On the Expo in Veldhoven, I think 5 years 
ago, I bought a cute pattern of 
it's a foldable threadcatcher,
very handy to take with you
and use while travelling,
I never know where to leave 
my leftover threads, 
now I can deposit them in 
my own handy dandy threadcatcher.
Under my threadcatcher you see 
a block for our Bloggersquilt,

    

a friend of mine Jacqueline
organizes a Bloggersquilt
she invites 
all European bloggers to send a block of their choice, size 15x15cm, the reason why this is the favourite block (or what it means to you) and a link to your blog.
I know I should not ask, but is a great day to reach out to you.

The next project is also on my Wishlist
for a long time, ever since I discovered
the Art to Heart designs
The one I used comes from Cottage Charm,
I like to use it outside, 
but since spring does not want 
to spring this year
the table outside is wet,
 so it had to be an 
inside photo.
The yellow fabric I got 3 Easters ago
from a friend, she placed it in a 
gift basket and wondered what
I would do with it.
I'll show her this week.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you have enjoyed my show.
Please hop along my co-hoppers of today and cheer them on:
Stekje  - you are here
I'm off cheering! Have a great day!

  27. Great bag. I have made those golf tee pincushions too, but I make mine a bit differently by using a wool felted ball instead. You can get my free tutorial for making one at Craftsy. Go to my blog under tutorials and click on the link.
    I love the table runner too and Art to Heart has wonderful designs. I have made several of those thread catchers too. Aren't they fun and useful?

  37. What lovely projects! I think that the table runner is my favorite but how cute is that purse too. I have been looking at purse patterns this past week so that of course, caught my eye. The daisy is made over a golf tee so you can stick it in the thread spool? I have two of those thread catchers and am thinking about making a third (the next blog hop, LOL coming up)
