More glorious sunshine this week, what a wonderful summer we're having so far this year.
Other than making birthday pressies (nothing i can show you yet...) i've also had some applique fun with some of the fabrics from my 'Tiny Flowers' collection, as always i look forward to hearing your thoughts :)
Cottage Daisies Lavender Pillows
I wanted to make these lavender pillows the kind that you might display around the house to add a cosy cottagey feel, the kind that makes it feel like home. They are a fairly generous 14.5 x 8.5cms and look just as cute propped on a shelf or window sill as they do hanging in a cupboard.
The body is a gorgeously soft organic linen and i have machine stitched the applique pieces and also machine embroidered some extra details like the smoke coming from the cottage's chimney and the stems on the daisies.
As always, they are filled with my favoured combination of pure sheep's wool and cotswold lavender and they smell heavenly :)
My Tiny Flowers fabrics are available to buy from my Spoonflower shop.
In Other News...How about a bit of cute to end on... we were driving along a local country lane when a little bird walked across the road in front of us followed by a flurry of what looked like autumn leaves... on closer inspection it was a mummy quail with a brood of tiny chicks! I just managed to lean out the window and get a snap of the last one to make it into the safety of the hedgerow :)
What have you been up to this week? I'm off over to Handmade Harbour to find out :)
Thank for dropping by! x
