Very Clever Friends

Oh finally I think I am back on the air.......What a shamozzel that turned out to be with no internet or phone! Bit hairy for a blogger.....I was having withdrawals! Hope it plays nice now. Anyway!
I wanted to share with you all my very talented friend Teresa's from All Things Vintage gorgeous project that she surprised us all with at LGS. Teresa was one of the surprise guest designers. I never get time to stitch anyone else's work even though I would often like it has to be something I cannot live without when I do! This is one of those.
Take a peek...
Told you it was gorgeous! Teresa kindly gave us the pattern and bits and bobs to get us started. I just had to get some of the beautiful fabric to make one from her. Not to mention the lace cards...ooh!
I didn't get much done on the stitching day but being a bit of a sickie I have curled up and stitched away madly.
Already to make the cover now...even have the little tulle dress all set to go too.
I have lots of little treasures that I will be able to use on the pockets etc.....loving this project. Plus when I get it done instead of having 45 different bags with projects in I may actually be able to find them
"ALL IN ONE PLACE" which just happens to be the name of the pattern. If you love it too and would like the pattern just link on Teresa's blog name earlier in the post to take you to her blog....leave a comment and I am sure she will get back to you. Ohh it is so nice to have clever friends who make beautiful things.
Even though I was dead and dying last night I dragged myself to the Entertainment Centre to see the Eagles in concert. As you know Mr R. and I have been fans FOREVER! I loved every second of it and have to say am a little worse for wear today but totally worth it.
Bernie Leadon, one of the originals joined them for this concert which was awesome!
These guys still rock!!!!!
Namaste and Blessings,
