Something rather lovely happened recently.
I'm sure you know by now that I've had a long time love affair with various Lecien fabrics? They tend to crop up regularly in my designs (Sweet Tweet was dedicated solely to Flower Sugar - see it here) and over the next few months you'll be seeing even more because I have been named as...
I am one of 15 creative gals who were asked to be World Ambassadors for Flower Sugar!
Each of us were sent a fat quarter bundle of the May 2016 Flower Sugar prints to play with and mine finally arrived from the USA in yesterday's post. Delicious is my best description of these 28 lovelies...
My mind is awash with ideas.
That first cut will be hard 'cause they look so pretty all bundled up in string...
...but I must bring out the big shears and the rotary cutter very soon.
Watch this space over coming months as I share with you some creative uses for Flower Sugar 2016.
Over the weekend I got to spend some time in the sewing room 'just for fun' and brought my vision for framing The Stitchery Club's "sweet home mini" block inside a few Lecien 'Petit Fleur' charm squares...
The addition of buttons gave the pillow a padded effect, something I'd not done before but shall be doing more of in the future as I love it!
There's a few 'home' themed pillows scattered around the house now, reminding me to share more regularly about what's happening during my year of gentle domesticity.
One thing I know for sure is that this year broke ground and prompted me to build new foundations under my desire for a life of gentle domesticity. Next year will be the building up phase and dedicated to The Simply Gentle Domestic Life; in fact there will also be a free BOM with this theme to share with you.
I hope you'll join along.
The stitchery pattern for "sweet home mini" is just $2.50 as an instant download HERE in my shop for the rest of the year.
Have a blessed day,
