In the Hoop projects and more by Angela from the UK

Hello
I am enclosing some pictures of designs I have machine embroidered which I recently purchased from your site. The sunflower bucket took 2 days to make but I love it. The second photo is of the daffodil glasses case, the rococo tissue pocket and the sunflower pen holder. They were all great fun to make.
Regards
Angela Jones
