Today I say it with flowers...

Welcome to my turn to hop in the "Say it with flowers" blog hop. Thank you so much to Madam Samm for creating the hop and Carol for organising and cheering us all along.

So when I started thinking what I would make for the hop, I thought what I wanted to say with flowers.... and I realised I wanted to say something nice to my mum... so I was going to make something for her... and as a little bit of a joke I decided to make this for my mum...



Yes a little pouch... but not any pouch... a sewing notions organising pouch. You see? My mum is not a very organised lady... oh her purse, and her diary... are always a little mess (she knows and admits it) and since I remember I have given her gifts such as new, bigger purses and diaries, with lots of pockets...but it has never worked...

And, even thought I haven't seen where she keeps her sewing notions (you see she has a new sewing machine) I know all the accessories for her new machine came in a little cardboard box (she showed me, hint hint hint that she wanted me to make her something)... so in an attempt to rescue them into a nicer home... I thought she could put them in here...



Aren't those pockets so good? She has space for bobbins (sorry they went right down in the pocket and you can't see them), little scissors, a slim pocket for the seam ripper and a bigger one for other accessories... even though the picture has my notions in, I sort of threw in the "In Love" pincushion as it was made with fabric from the same line...


And look how nice it looks with the matching needle case. I am not actually giving this one to my mum... although she has another version of it I made... so now she has a complete set of her own.

Well mummy sorry I spoiled your gift, but it is on my bag of things to take to Argentina next time I am over... so you will get it, soon I promise!

Now off you go to visit the rest of the very talented ladies showcasing their flowery creations...
