Sewing Rita

I have a couple of new images from Pink Gem to use and this one does make me smile. This Sewing Rita and I know it will amuse my Mum who visits my blog every day. She has a friend called Rita who knits but doesn't sew and a friend called Sylvia who does sew so this image is an amalgam of them both I think.

I coloured her with Copics, the paper is from The Works, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I added some wooden embellishments and buttons tied with baker's twine as I don't like naked button unless they are very tiny.

Lots to do in the garden today including clearing out some of the Spring flowers and bulbs from pots and replanting them with Summer bedding.
