Bright And Beautiful

The sun is shining outside and it is a beautiful spring morning. I have been for a lovely walk with the dog and I could be tempted to spend the morning pottering around the garden. However, I have things I need to do indoors, so to bring a bit of brightness inside, I thought I would share some gorgeous, bright, floral fabrics.



I have been busy cutting out hexagons so that when I have a quiet moment I can sit and hand stitch them together. I find it so soothing to hand stitch and although I love contemporary textile art, there are times when only traditional methods will do! I will be transforming these hexagons into lavender bags or pin cushions, which will appear in my Etsy shop after Easter.
