I have to admit to not doing what I said I was going to on the WiP front! I had decided to get on with my EPP quilt – so close to being finished – but it hasn’t happened yet.
Instead I’ve managed to talk myself into another task for the wedding which has taken me a long, long way away from my comfort zone – flower arranging! Fortunately for me a talented and generous lady has been wonderful in guiding me through the mysteries involved in this new to me skill, I’m just skimming the surface with this creative craft and it’s like a whole new world opening up before me 🙂
On the sewing front I’ve appliquéd the flowers onto the cushion front and I’m feeling much happier with it. That may be because I’ve just got used to the colours now or it could be because the flowers have softened it all up a bit – probably a bit of both 😉
I now need to turn it into a cushion cover so it can join my Daisy Chain quilt and my Daisy Basket quilt in my bedroom.
I’ve also made myself a little brooch,
And keeping with the flower theme my church had its annual flower festival last week so here a a couple of photos to show you some of the beautiful arrangements.
Years ago I drafted Black work embroidery patterns for those windows and even made a couple up – goodness knows where they went!
Until next time,
