Garden Song Pillow/Cushion.




Birthdays can be often difficult which is why this year I have decided to make my own!, yes out came my trusty machine . I also decided to join a sewing club and whilst broswing around , well to be honest I was mere being nosey lol , well I spotted a book sitting on the shelf that shouted out to me. The book is "Garden Song" by Nancy Havvorsen and is jammed pack with gift ideas and easy instructions too which I need.

Materials are mostly those used in the book with the exception of the4 backing which is a pretty blue floral but you have to agree it goes well. My applique stillneeds paractice but hey I am getting there albeit slow lol.

Hope you like!!

Welcome

Hi and welcome to my new venture in the blogging world. I am pretty new to quilting although have been sewing for many years off and on. My passion is making smaller items such as cute bags and wallhangings etc. Hopefully soon I will take my first step to starting a quilt , something I have been itching to do for some time now but confidence is still low.
As there are many blogs now on the the internet I know youare sure to find me popping in to say hi so please take time to say hi back.

Sweet Christmas.

Away from the standard traditional colours of Christmas for this card, instead using Pink! the images from Sweet Christmas Stamperia paper...
