Patchwork winter bags and rusty garden colours

Winter isn't over yet, so I decided to  make some more bags from tapestry fabric, wool, cotton,embroidery. 
Friends really liked the rusty one I made in the Fall. I get inspired, lots of times, by the colours in my garden. The Lagerstroemia below, has beautiful pink flowers in summer, but in October the leaves start to change colour!



The picture was taken while it was raining. When the sun is shining the colours are even more vibrant!

I made a second bag in rust colours. Appliqued a beige flower on one side of the bag and sew a crocheted granny square on the other side. 



I didn't make the granny square. A very good friend of mine made it. The flower is cut out of tapestry fabric.



I love the colour combinations of the flowers below, the rust and the purplish blue. This picture was taken in spring!! But the colours remind me more of Autumn.

Last year I went with my friend Theodora to the flea market in Athens.
I bought a few pieces of embroidery. The one below was in a frame, which was, according to the vendor, a beautiful frame!!!! Well, the frame went in the recycle bin and I kept the lovely landscape. 

The pictures aren't very good, but, as I sold the bag, I can't make better ones!





A few day ago I finished a purple bag. One of these days I will post the pictures.

And, to stay in the colour scheme a picture of my Clematis "Alice Fisk"

Dat geborduurde landschap op de tas is prachtig in combinatie met de andere herfstkleuren. Heerlijk om inspiratie uit de tuin te halen.
Fijn weekend,
Janneke

Je tassen zijn weer wonderschoon! Prachtige kleuren. Het is helemaal in om borduur werk te gebruiken anders dan in een lijst of zo.
Je tuin is een inspiratie bron in alle jaargetijden. Ik denk dat er zelfs in de winter nog wel kleur te bekennen valt. Fijn weekend.
Groet, Willemien.

Your bags are lovely!!!!!!!!! I like them all and their beautiful combination of fabrics!!!!
Your lagerstroemia is stunning! It must be big, I guess! I have two, but they are small shrubs and their leaves fell off a long time ago. You have a beautiful garden!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wish you a nice weekend!!!!

Hallo Nieneke, Ik ben ook veel in de tuin te vinden. En ik ben veel met patchwork bezig. Kristine Pappas, een Amerikaanse, geeft gratis patchwork lessen in Thessaloniki. Leuk om een nederlands/griekse blogster te ontmoeten! Groetjes.
