Patchwork is my PASSION!!
Greetings everyone, feeling fit as a fiddle again. Great gym session this morning, happy children at school & lots of Posie parcels of love shipped out to excited customers in the mail. Great feeling.
On Thursday, Peggy-Jean herself popped by with this beautiful bunch of flowers, which was such a lovely treat. Please have a look at her blog, which is all innocent & new, listed on the right. Melissa is her real name & she's just as lovely as these flowers. She also brought over a whole new range of stunning cards for shops & the markets.
Our son went to his first girlfriend's birthday party on the weekend. It was really sweet & he was the only boy invited. I made this patchwork cushion for a very pretty little 3y.o. Irish girl, with princessy double satin ribbon side ties as her gift. The little man chose all the fabrics himself, in red and pink Vintage children's prints, mixed in with a dose of Cath Kidston.
I thought a little keepsake of initials on the back would complete the gift, with the Heart to Heart print meaning 'loves'. Sewing is my passion, but it's also my profession, so while i put lots of love into my customer gifts, i get so much pleasure from knowing who i am sewing for. Patchwork is my favourite medium.I'll just add the images & get back to some more sewing, the night is young . . . enjoy, love Posie
