Hello to you again. I'm sorry that you're not feeling well
I love the new bags with the pictures and the lovely words.
I think we would produce some amazing stuff if we ever worked together.
I'm busy doing more paintings but have a few health issues that are giving me real problems and some pain.
However doing my work can sometimes distract if the work goes well, not always easy.
Love to you.

it's trying to be spring here but, to be sure, there are a couple of snows left in the future. Blackberry Winter comes the second weekend in May and brings snow. in the meantime, I'll enjoy warmer weather.
your sewing is lovely...well done!

Fundy Blue said...

What beautiful things you have sewn, Lynn! And the first bag has the words of a favorite song of mine. Hope you feel better soon! Snowstorm for me today ~ I hope your weather is better.

Hi Lynn, thanks for letting me know thru Flickr. I'm so glad you're back. It's been wretched in the UK, hasn't it? What a spring! To think that New Year's Day Robert and I walked down to the village glorying in the warmth and sunshine and I thought, "yay, spring is here". Lol. But I'm in Vancouver right now and we have our usual rain, rain, rain. Your stitching is so romantic and lovely and I love the bag with the leather handles. It's miserable to have a cold in the spring time, isn't it? I hope it passes soon. Big hugs. x

Annie said...

That little rabbit is so dear. Love the combination of textures here.
