Embroidered Evening Bag

Here is the final product.  I am really pleased at the end result.


The small bulls eye is the zipper pull.  The interior is salmon ultra suede. 
I printed out all the right answers and pulled Jane S. out of the hat.
So I will e-mail Jane and give her the choice of the two remaining designs.

Some of you have asked questions but I have no way of answering you.  I would love to look at all your blogs but I need a link.  It might be right in front of me but I sometimes am a little slow so e-mail me!!

Happy Thanksgiving Give Away

It has been a while since I "blogged" ... the week without power burr (I never would have survived as a pioneer) ...the week cleaning up the yard ...the week plus baking eight 5lb tubs of cookie dough for my church fair  etc.   Somewhere in there I decided to attempt  making a small evening bag to auction off at the fair silent auction.  I came up with 3 different designs pictured below.  Each is in a circle of about 6 inch.  The 6 small circles will be cut out and stitched together.  One side is a design the other side is my "chop" (signature)

The bird is back and I like him much more this time!!
A few flowers with lots of chenille leaves.
This is a flower fashioned after one of my favorite Lesage pieces level 7 Ravel.
Leave a comment guessing which of the three designs I decided to put on the front of the evening bag. 

The winner will be selected at random from the correct choice of design.

The winner gets to choose between the two designs I did not use on the bag.  (the design only)  
I will announce the winner Monday morning along with  pictures of  the completed evening bag.

P.S.  After all that has happened I am grateful that the storm was not much worse. 

Wishing all of you a very grateful and happy Thanksgiving Day!!
