Nature finds









I made this little fabric wallet to house my nature finds as an example for the next couple of workshops I am doing, the theme of which is 'keep safe'.  I'm always bringing the treasures I find on my walks with Sparky my dog, home with me. Now I have somewhere special to put them.

If you are interested in doing a workshop with me I will be at Sew not Strawberry Jam in July, at Indigo Moon Creative Workshops in September and at The Weavers Gallery in Ledbury in October. Click on the links for details. It would be lovely to see you there.

this is the most beautiful perfect keepsake for the treasures nature offers, the quote from Mary Oliver, the careful stitching the vintage lace, the subtle colours, you have "the muchness" (as the Mad Hatter said to Alice) Christine!

I so admire your work, Christine! This one is absolutely gorgeous. I hope you don't mind my asking but do you crochet each of those little flowers or are they already made and you just tack them on? Everything about this is so thoughtful and well designed. I love it! Would love to take one of your workshops but I'm on the other side of the pond in California. Thank you, for sharing the unique work you create. It is so enjoyable to see what you are creating.
Thank you!

Thank you all for your lovely comments, I love to share with you and it's always so nice to hear from you!
In answer to your question hawker9999, I don't crochet the lace flowers myself... I am patient, but not that patient!They are cut from a vintage lace doyley that had seen better days, they are really tiny!

I will have to get over to the US one day to do a workshop!
