I continued with making some more little flowers. I didn't have a plan, design or layout in mind, just my usual kind of winging it, gut instinct kind of method! I wasn't sure whether a minimal or full impact approach was required, so after a few blooms I tried a couple of layouts...
The second I think has real possibilities. So I will come back to that with a fresh eye, I have a feeling some embroidery will be required from me too ( oh dear, why do I dread sewing so)
I've also progressed more with my heathers cushion. Normally I find the joining to be oh so tedious, but this one has been coming together quite nicely and not been a chore at all.
And I can see the finish line in sight, I could even pop its little pad in to see what it will look like, I just have the last overlap edge to complete, and add some buttons to fasten...
My original intention was to have a go at making a large fimo, decorative button for the front, but maybe a large flower, like on a lily pond, is the way to go? Hmmmm...? Any thoughts? ??
I had some 'happy mail' a little pack of buttons sent from IGer @handcraftedlove, I'm sure they will look lovely on a future project
And so for this weeks mood square. Where the majority of the week has been quite relaxed, and I had a great, positive annual review at work, a couple of stressy bits did creep in...
Red - beautiful hot sunny weather
Peach/pink - relaxation
Purple - unwanted stressiness
