A few of my favourite things.....

 Lots of pretty things to share with you today, firstly I'm excited to tell you my latest design has been published in Patchwork and Stitching magazine Vol 15 No 1.  They are pretty pin cushions, or as the magazine call them..... Pin Pillows. They were such fun to make and the little saw tooth block is so cute and easy to make.
 I love how the magazine photograph my projects, they look so good.

 As a little added touch I embroidered flowers on the cotton tape, I think this gives it a nice look.
 Now I have almost finished my next design so I will be excited to share that with you later on.  I always worry that people won't like my designs but some very lovely ladies have kindly emailed me photos of the projects they made and I was thrilled.
 I am up to date with my fat quarter shop block of the month, this months block was quick and easy. I do love Fig tree fabrics.
 I made a little mat for my kitchen, just to have on the bench with a vase of flowers on it. I really must get that binding sewn down today then I can use it.
 My garden is looking beautiful with all the summer flowers in full bloom, I grew Alliums for the first time and I love them, they are about as big as a golf ball and very pretty.

Ok time to say goodbye and get back to my latest project, have a wonderful day. Hope you find some sewing time.

Cute pincushions, Leanne. I love the stitched tags.

Lynda said...

Your designing is lovely and, you're right, the magazines do photograph them beautifully. I won some of the Avalon fabric last year - it's so lovely although I do find it difficult using blue. Funny because it's a favourite colour. Love your flowers - would love to see a photo of the whole garden.

Colleen said...

Ohhhh what a tease with those beautiful flowers! It is freezing cold winter here in Wisconsin in the US.

Your designs are very cute!

Sandi said...
