July - Greetings from Finland

Hello, my dear SAL -friends!

During this month I have seen many beautiful Chilly Penguins Bags and also many beautiful variations of it!
As many of us I also decided to stitch another Natalie's stitchery than penguins, although I deeply LOVE penguins. But this time I wanted my bag to be more summery than wintery ;o)

One morning I found my 'little' cat sitting under petunia flowers and then I got the idea to use a cat stitchery from Natalie's Red Home book.

 Aren't they both quite cute in the middle of flowers?

Maybe the hardest part of this project was to find a nice lining fabric.

I had many candidates, but after all I chose this Quilt Gate's Mary Rose fabric. The other floral fabrics I found from the Papillon -collection by 3 Sisters.

Well, now it's time to start to think about next project...
it seems more complicated than this bag.
