Classic Cottage Chintz

Hello everyone, hope you have had a productive day today, here
are the lovely Chintzy fabrics I bought on Tuesday aren't they fab!
This is a picture of my old Peg bag! I bought this in Hawaii in 1993
and I do think it has seen better days don't you? although I really
can't bear to throw things away like this, as every time I hang my
washing on the line it brings back such wonderful memories...........
but it has to here is the new one I made today
With my new chinzy fabric.....
a lace doily that I stitched with ribbon to try to read Pegs!!
don't know if it looks like it though? and then threaded
the ribbon through the outline holes and tied a bow...

I then stitched it on by hand using a green silk thread that
is used for embroidery, as I wanted it quite thick I used all
six strands....

then finished off with some wide green ribbon for the pulls
either side, well I'm quite pleased with it. That sewing
machine is getting a little airing! hee hee
Here is WOYGTT...What's on your Garden Table Thursday!!Lol
I went outside to eat my sandwich at lunch time and where was

chilling with Zesty the budgie!! ha ha!,,Ooh what a life!!
Here's a close up of that snooze monster!!
Hope you have a lovely evening, TFL, Sue xx
