This is a picture of the first needle-case I made ( of this pattern) a couple of questions have been asked "was it a pattern"? " is it available " ?
Well I have to say ... no not really or not from me ... you see I saw a picture of it on the Internet while we were living in Dubai I used to while away many hours on the net there when it was to hot to go outside and I used to collect ideas for stitcheries to use in the future .. for the life of me I can not remember at what I was looking at at the time and it struck my fancy so I drew a quick sketch of it ... there was no name with it .... it was just a picture on a Google photo search.
I have since tried to find anything like it on the net but to no avail, I also asked the question with the picture of my needle case to many groups that I belonged to at the time and no one had any idea where it was from etc.
But since then someone from USA did leave a comment and said it was " Atalie " what I have since found out ... she is may be a French designer but I can find nothing about her or where to get her patterns. I have searched the net I can find nothing similar and no one seems to know anything about the patterns
I would also be very interested if anyone out there knows anything of her or her patterns.
Stay a while and browse I chat about all nature of things mainly quilting and embroidery,but also life around us the fields, the flowers and family
Copying things from my blog
I am quite happy for people to use anything that I publish on my blog, if you wish to copy that is just great by me, I would treat that as a compliment, if it goes to a good cause then that is a double bonus.
Me. I am 70 yrs young, I finally went to university when I was in my 40's and received my diploma the same year as my daughter received hers. So there was life in the old gal.
I have been a follower and followed my then husband around the world, he working and me..I had a wonderful time and would not have changed a thing the experiences are 100 fold, I really must get around to writing a book. We have lived in France, USA, UK, Spain, Kuwait, Jordan, Philippines, China, Bahrain, Dubai and NZ to name but a few.
My nomadic life began in 1977 when my then husband was offered a job in Kuwait / Dubai Our wanderings continued and finally we ended up again in Dubai in 2006/9.. 30yrs later, so life has been in a full circle.
Stitching and Quilting kept me sane in all these years and are now my best friends. 2013 now sees me at home in New Zealand with my children and grand children and my last move from these shores. Vacations apart of course.
