Seeds of Love: A Brenda Ryan design


Here is the little coin purse all finished. I must say that this was really a lot of fun to make.

Not that long ago, seems to me, I was mostly doing needlepoint while my good friend Terry was mostly doing embroidery. She wanted to do needlepoint and I helped her with some of her projects and I wanted to learn embroidery as I loved so much what she was stitching. The end result is that Terry is now also doing needlepoint and loving it and I am doing embroidery and absolutely loving every single minute of it and now can't understand why I had not started doing it earlier.

I have included a photo with the coin purse opened showing the embroidery.

There is such a sweet detail that the designer, Brenda Ryan added that I did not want you to miss it and turned the photo 180° degrees so that you can have a look at the little flower face looking at you when you are either putting something in or taking something out of the little coin purse.

Brenda suggested it as a little coin purse, but there are lots of other uses for it. The size of the little coin purse is a little over 4½" by 4½".
-
There are two other designs from Brenda that I will also be making. One is the same size but with a different embroidery and the third one is a bigger size with another embroidery. Different fabrics will also be used to make them.

Its turned out a real cracker and if you are not sure of that expression it means that its a real beauty and you have done a great job with it.

Hi Terry,

Oh I had a pretty good idea as I was thinking about firecrackers :-)

I really must get out my copy that the design came from and I look forward to seeing the others that I think you said that you were also going to do

A lovely item, Pierette! By the way, you've been tagged.

Cynthia,

When I created my blog, I decided on two rules for it.

The first one would be that there would always be at least one photo of a stitched item each time I posted on my blog.

The second rule that I decided upon was that it would only be about embroidery and nothing else.

Thanks for thinking of me though.

This one came from 'Inspirations' too, right??=) Love that mag and can't wait for the new issue to make it to the UK. Should be here within the next week or two.....

Yes, Lizzie, another one from "Inspirations". They have so many lovely projects that a person would find herself quite busy working exclusively on their projects. Can't wait either to get the next issue.

Jenny,

I love to vary the kind of stitching that I do. It just makes life more interesting, at least to me (big smile).
