Thought I'd just show you what I've put together for my Mum for Mothers Day as I've just come in from finishing it.
I bought a cedar barrel, a Marguerite, some bluey purple aubretia (Kitte Blue) and some lovely tall pink primulas (Primlet Pink Shades) which are kind of curled like a rosebud inside, then planted up the barrel.
Logan helped by guarding the flowers
This morning I started to make some more crazy patchwork hearts using spring coloured fabrics - vintage, re-cycled and a few new ones.
These will be going in the blog shop which I hope to set up next week.
They will be filled with lavender like the ones I made a few weeks ago.
I also hope to get an Etsy shop going within the next few weeks - am all registered, just need to find out and learn how to get it all going.
Any advice from other Etsy shop owners would be very welcome as I am completely new to online selling!!!
Yesterday I made up the patchwork piano stool cover, just need to clean, lightly sand and re-finish the stool itself before fixing it on with upholstery nails.
The piano is in the family room where, if you look at yesterdays post, I have been trying to inject a few shots of colour. So I thought I'd use some cheery fabrics to match.
Just a shot of Logan learning to"sit" on command. This is the sofa where we practice. When he obeys, he gets a little biscuit treat which he likes to then flip around and play with, and try to push under the rug!
He's getting pretty good at "sitting" now - my daughter was really good training him to sit last week, but he got so good that for a few days after, whenever he saw her he would just sit in anticipation of the treat!!!
No flies on Logan!!!
Have a great weekend everyone,
and Happy Mother's Day for Mothering Sunday to all you Mums - I hope you get spoilt rotten!
(Hey, does that mean I get a lie in instead of getting up at 7am for the dog????
Hope my daughter reads this - I know my husband won't!)
