update on bag

Made a little bit of progress on my shopping bag. I think this stitch is called fly stitch, which, apart from leaves, could also be used for feathery bird's wings. I have used 3 strands of anchor embroidery floss.

Nowhere finished yet. But since this photo I have sewn some flowers on in bright blue and orange.

We had a lovely few sunny days but overnight it suddenly went cold and back to normal now :0( Still it was enjoyable whilst it lasted and the birdies were very chirpy and spring like!


  1. It is looking so good, you must be really pleased!

  2. The green looks gorgeous against that fabric Penny and your stitching is perfect!

  3. Gorgeous stitching and design. Can't wait to see the finished project
