I am getting so much sewing done this weekend and I love it, Its "just for me " sewing as I'm happy to say all my christmas gifts are made and most have been posted already so I grabbed my christmas scraps out of my stash and I'm having a lovely time. I want to make a couple of big christmas pillows for the lounge so I started on some little economy blocks. I think I need 16 to make a decent size, the blocks finish at 5 1/2 inches each.
I also had this square of fabric from Kate Spain's range in from the Cold so I'm using that as a centre piece for another pillow. Its too nice to cut into.
Yesterday while I was sorting through my stash I came across my tilda fabrics, I love the softness of Tilda, its so pretty and delicate so I thought I'd cut up some 2 1/2 inch squares and throw them altogether and make a table runner, when I had sewn them into a square shape I changed my mind about the runner and thought they looked nicer as a cushion.
I added the binding so make it look a bit fancier, I love it.
Summer is upon us but today is cool and so windy, I was looking at my precious liliums and the wind has knocked them around a little bit but they still look so pretty. Just had to share a few pics with you. You all know how much I love my garden. Hope youre not sick of seeing it.
My first lupin flower.
The first cornflower, I hope there will all different colours when they flower.
Ok, its back to sewing a nice cup of English Breakfast tea, We went to K Kart this morning and I was looking at all their new stocking stuffers, I'm a sucker for a nice box so I had to buy the tea and it came with the tea thingy. ( I'm not sure what its called ) I told my boys its like a tea bag. They just looked at me as if I was crazy.
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy your christmas sewing.
