Mystery part 2 and beautiful stamps

Part 2 of the mystery was the first I started the embroidery .After a long walk I went on with it.I'm very fond of the result so now I'm just wondering what the designer has in her mind.A house?Birds?More flowers? I wanted to show you the stamps on the lovely letter I got in the middle of the week.In some areas of the country you can see the cherry blossom and also other flowers.My penfriend send me these stamps on her letter to me.Thank you R.We still have a lot of snow and no flowers at all outside but lovely sunny days and cold nights so it's very nice to take a walk even early in the morning.Tomorrow I'm writing letters and some cards.I hope you have time to send for example a card to someone. I wish you a nice weekend.

Things made on the workshop

Hand dyed fabric stripes was "braided" and on some places also applicated.Hopefully this can be a mug rug or a little decoration on a table.
this bag is made by recycled and hand dyed fabrics.We took the "hems" from the curtins.Perfect for the bag and as it's double you don't need to have anything extra inside the bag. .
