Say It With Flowers Bloghop!


Today it's time for me to show what I made for this fun bloghop Say it with flowers! Finally! This fun bloghop is organized by the lovely Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt , and Carol from Just let Me Quilt is our lovely cheerleader.
I have been stitching and sewing two, actually three items. 
The first one I sewed is a Knitting Needle Roll. I used a tutorial from Handknits by Susan
As I wasn't quite satisfied I sewed another one. I have several kinds of needles, so I'm sure I can use them both. This piece of fabric brings up sweet memories, as it is brought to me by friends, who, seeing this fabric, knew I would love it!
The third item took some more time. I stitched tulips, lots of small tulips, as I wanted to show I am a crafter from the Netherlands. I used part of a chart designed by Nicole Dostal that appeared in Just Cross Stitch March/April 2012. 
I finished it as a purse, in which I can take my stitch accessories.
And then there is something else I wanted to show. I just finished it yesterday, as a gift to DD who is going to visit the USA. She will be away for at least seven weeks. I know, it doesn't shout: flowers, but the flowers are added in the picture. And, there is a stitched flower in it!
It was such a fun to be involved in this bloghop. Thanks for visiting my blog and you are happily invited to visit the other bloggers. Here's the schedule for today:
May 28th
Stitching & Stuff (that's this place)

And for the whole blog hop schedule just look HERE

I like all your needle cases, but I have to say the one with the tulips is wonderful. I think creating something showing where your from is always a good idea. I'm from Texas and I like to make things that represent my love for it. I enjoyed visiting you today.

The knitting needle bags are wonderful. (I made one earlier this year to house a 75 piece set of double points and had not a clue how to go about it but it all worked out in the end)

The stitchery floral pieces are lovely too. I hope your DD enjoys her time visiting the US.
