Sneak Peek

This is my first "solo" post, well not quite solo, Abby is helping me.  I am finding this quite stressful but I must keep going.

Here is a sneak peek at a new project, well at least a project in the planning - applique and then embellish, embellish, embellish

These gorgeous fabrics are going to be cut into flower shapes and then appliqued and embellished with embroidered stems.
I did mention that this was a "sneak peek" so that is all for now more to come as I start cutting and stitching.  The leaves are turning so winter is coming will try and share some of this glorious colour with you next time, till then happy stitching.

My Inspiration

I felt it high time that I did a post. Please understand that I am still getting aquainted with this blogging thing, it will take a little time but I will get there.
I thought I would share with you a little corner of my cottage and where I gain some of my inspiration.I fell in love with the scallop on this cabinet.
I like to draw , some days in my garden I see toadstools and daisies , this can inspire some of my illustrations.

I love Vintage , these old knitting needles provoke many wonderful thoughts of the garments made in the past, what were they and who wore them hmm
Oops , this photo has landed sideways, never mind you'll get the idea if you turn your head on its side. I also inspired by the colour red and find it easy to whip up a few sewing implements.

yes you guessed it another place to store all your sewing goodies and in my favourite colour.
I hope this Easter you manage to find some inspiration from your surroundings.

Happy Easter
