The Ooh la la bag

As I promised this bag has been french-e-fied and it was so much fund doing.  There's the little coquette who reminds me of Audrey Hepburn one of my favorite actresses.  Then there's the sweet little french poodle that I think belongs on a grey round skirt just like back in the 50's.  Then there's the Eiffel Tower that represents everything french.  


Oh how I wish I could go and see all the beautiful needlework they do.  If you haven't treated yourself to looking at french blogs, do so with envy.  What I think is so wonderful is that they don't use all the overdyed threads like we do.  You will find them stitching on white, cream or natural linen and using white, cream or red floss and everything turns out stunning!
Well back to my Maureen Appleton sampler and I have one more bag I'm thinking of doing and then I will take a break for awhile.  I'm sure by now everyone is sick of seeing them.
Everyone have a blessed weekend, Barbara

That's a cute bag - poodles, you know! Do you remember when people dyed their poodles pink? Pixie's black, so no chance of that here.
