My Friday night was a good sewing night, as soon as dinner was over I got my stitching set up. I am working on a new table runner that I designed.
It has little flowers stitched throughout and I used my beautiful Tilda fabrics that I have been hoarding. I remember watching a tv show once about a poor family and they received some beautiful china, that night at dinner the mum used the china and the kids were amazed. Mum said " why have beautiful things if you can't use them" Well thats how I feel about some of my fabrics, why keep them in the cupboard when you can make them into a beautiful quilt.
I can't wait to get this one finished,
While we are chatting about beautiful things I have to share some beautiful blooms in my garden right now. The anemones are pretty but the crab apple blossoms are AMAZING. Look how pretty they are.
I wish they stayed like that all year round.
My husband always gets worried when I say " I have an idea " Well he actually liked this one, I wanted a new garden built int he back corner of the yard with a little seating area, so this is what we came up with it.
We got a big trailer load of new soil delivered and today I am going to plant over 30 packets of seeds in the area, I have zinnias, marigolds and paper flowers just to name a few so watch this space as my seeds start to grow and all excited. I can't wait to share with you,
Its going to be a glorious day, if you would like to see what other ladies got up with their sewing pop over here and check them out. Thankyou Wendy for hosting.
Have a great day.
