Sunday sewing..

 I have had a very productive weekend in my little sewing room, I made these 2 union jack blocks to make into cushions, they were a delight to make in such fresh, pretty colours.
 I just need to do a bit of quilting on them and make the cushion inserts. I'll share them again when I get them finished.
 I also made some lavender pillows, this block is from my pincushion design that was featured in the Patchwork and stitching  magazine this month. Isn't it so cute. it smells wonderful to.,  I think these would make great gifts.
 During the week I bought some printed linen, its so soft and should be fun to work with, it was one of those purchases where you have no plan for it but you want it anyway, I think a bag would look nice.
 On my desk I had heaps of ready to sew dresden plates that I was sick of looking at so I sewed those up, now they are ready to be appliqued onto the back ground.
I have to share with you my beautiful Glady flower that I picked from my garden yesterday, its perfect, no marks on it or anything. My garden is still blooming with all our summer flowers, soon I'll be thinking about planting some bulbs.


So thats what I have been up to all weekend, I am also working in a secret design for a magazine, so maybe I can share a few sneak peeks as I progress.  Have a wonderful Sunday.
