Feels like Spring Time...

.. well not quite! It may be cold and gloomy outside, and I have to switch the lights on by 2pm but there can always be a little bit of spring in my studio. So as I was finding it a miserable the other night I decided to get creative and create my own bit of sunshine!


So some felt, scraps of fabric, a few buttons and some beads and the sun came out! The quilting was fun, but it would have been easier if I had bought home any of my feet when I brought home my sewing machine but alas... so this was quilted with a zipper foot! Who knew that was even possible?

I am still on the hunt for a bee button to put at the top, so I will be paying Etsy a visit, but apart from that it is all done!

It has proved so popular that I will be teaching it in the shop on 21st January next year and hope it makes some other people remember those spring days that seem so far away!

  2. A very delightful piece of work and so good to look at on a rainy day, like the one in Somerset today. I must just say though, that I saw some primroses whilst out walking the village lanes on Boxing day!
