Flower Garden Writing Set

I purchased some (okay quite a few) of Anni Downs note pads just before Christmas and decided that they were so lovely they needed to be kept safe in a protective fabric cover

I already had this stitchery on my design board and thought it would be perfect for the cover


a bit of hand quilting








a simple little lazy daisy added to the centre of inside pocket


Now Anni's lovely notepads can be kept safely in my hand bag or sewing bag!

Bye For Now
