My sister called the other day and told me about a little lady in her church named Miss Rosie. In the south we always precede a lady's name with Miss (or Aunt - if she's very close!) Miss Rosie teaches Bible study and has a wonderful ministry in their church. My sister asked if I remembered the bag I had sent her for her birthday in which to carry her music. It was embroidered with a grand piano and musical notes. She furthered queried where I had gotten that bag. I replied that, of course, I had made the bag myself - silly girl! She proceeded to tell me about the ratty bag that Miss Rosie carries for her Bible and study materials. Obviously, this bag is a complete disgrace! We cannot have that. So, knowing that I could not refuse her, my sister asked if I would make something more presentable for Miss Rosie's stuff.
I went to my computer and looked through the designs I have and found one I thought would be perfect. It is a Sunbonnet Sue reading her Bible by Embroidery Library (www.emblibrary.com) I get some of my best designs from them. I added a couple of floral fluorishes (from a design CD called Spring Linens - I think by OESD) and her name. I stitched it out on my Babylock Ellisimo. It took most of a day to stitch out the design and about half an hour to put the bag together. LOL!! I must admit, if I could get by with carrying a bag monogramed "Miss Rosie" I'd keep this thing. It is just way too cute!
