"My Rose Garden" Sewing Set

Today I want to show you the things which I have been working on and introduce a new blogger.

But before doing this I want to thank all of you have left nice comments on my previous post. Some people were wondering if my new pet tame or not. No, the buck is not tame and he came not alone but with a herd of 5 other deer, they all are young and "stupid". A lot of activities are going on around here and poor animals are displaced and looking for another quiet place to live in. We have not seen them since their last visit and now worry about them : hunting season is very soon... And I want to say to other people who have deer close to their houses - do not try to pet them, we were crazy, I will never try to pet any wild animal again, you never know what is going on in their little brain.

Ok, now presentation of "My Rose Garden" Sewing Set. In the e-mails and comments I was also asked who is the designer of "My Rose Garden" Box . It's me, Olenka's Stitches.
I am planning to make several series of designs, the first is "Romantic" with "My Rose Garden" Sewing Set in it.
Today I am going to show "My Rose Garden" Basket and Pinkeep. I worked a little more on the box design which you saw in the previous post to adapt it better for the basket lid. Here are some pictures of the basket I made:


As you can see the lid of the basket is reversible and the other side of the lid can be used as a pin cushion. The basket can hold a pair of scissors, thimble, threader, needle case, etc. or any other little sewing treasures.

Here is the pinkeep and its detail:



And here is the whole sewing set. Soon I will add a couple of items more to it , but first I need to finish a birthday present( to whom is a secret).

If you are interested in buying my designs, send me an e-mail please. My e-mail address is in my profile.

Now I'd like to introduce you to a new blogger, Olga, my namesake from the United Kingdom. She is new to blogging but not to cross stitching. Do you remember my post "Another "My Rose Garden" Biscornu"? That is she who stitched that biscornu! Please, go visit her blog, I am sure you will enjoy seeing her fabulous cross stitched pieces and some rare collections.

I also want to thank Cenoura who tagged me and according to the rules of this new game I am to name:

* my strongest trait of character - determination


* my weakest trait of character - my fears of bugs, frogs, lizards, snakes.


Happy stitching and take care!
