Good grief, where has the time gone since my last post?!!
It certainly has gone in the blink of an eye, and I guess that's because everyday seems full on at the moment, but in a good, holidayish way. Having Bella at home means we're trying to make the most of our time.
We've been out and about lots this last week or two, and the few days I've been at home I've been sewing or pottering in the garden, or we've been baking.
On the creative front, I've made several new cushions including this one........
now with a quilted heart in the centre square
..........made from original 1930s - 1950s feedsack fabrics, hand pieced and hand quilted, with a vintage French blue and cream checked reverse...............
................and this pretty pink vintage French floral one, with a recycled work shirt reverse.
Finally, I have a work in progress.........
.......this star made from a pinkish red vintage dress fabric, and recycled work shirt, which has been hand pieced (epp) and is now awaiting the next stage - being appliqued onto a piece of natural linen, then made up into..........yes, of course, it has to be another cushion!
Both finished cushions are now available to buy in my Etsy shop.
The best of the days out have been Eastbourne Airborne, an airshow at the seafront this past weekend, and a visit to Sissinghurst Castle in Kent.
I shall do a separate post on these later in the week once I've sorted out the photos properly, but here's a taster from Sissinghurst.............
I hope you are all having good summer holidays, either at home or away, and enjoying some sunshine.
I must apologise that my blog visiting has been rather sporadic these last few weeks - I have so many blogs to catch up with so if I haven't paid you a visit for a while, I will do very soon!
In the meantime, thank you for taking the time to visit me here, and for all your lovely comments - I do so enjoy reading them!
