Linen and a tulip

Sorry, but you'll have to wait awhile for the Finland part2 post. Thanks for all your nice comments about my Finnish lion anyway! I have a couple of other things on the same theme that I will show you soon-ish. I just have another project that feels more tempting right now. Or maybe two... I made another make-up pouch that I quite like, I found a great dotty shirt second hand that I lined it with. The follow-your-heart-theme will continue in my next project, i bought some wonderful linens today. And I left some wonderful ones back in the store, buuhuu... Anyway I can't wait to get them washed and to start cutting them up! Little E broke that tulip for me. I like them very much, they were planted by a previous owner and it was a nice surprise when they showed up.

And since I am not digging where I stand today go see artist Janet Bell in Chester, UK. Her house paintings are just wonderful! She also has a blog.

Love the little feet on your bird! He looks like a learning-to-walk toddler!

I love your embroidery and appliques. And that Janet paints the loveliest things.

Thank you so much for the link, such kindness. I am so excited about getting my quilts, I will be sure to do a post on them. That pouch is so lovely too. Mutual admiration is great! Janet xxx

Love the little pouch, and the tulip is lovely. When I was young I picked my mother's entire bed of daffodils.

The pouch is lovely, as is the lion. Wish I knew how to sew! I guess I have to stick to painting and getting inspired by crafty people llike you! :-)
