Hello friends! How are you this fine Saturday?
I am feeling good as we are going to take it easy the next couple of weeks with the kids being off school and no hurry to do much except enjoy the fine spring weather and have fun! (Spring cleaning has been conveniently assigned to a hiding place somewhere in the back of my mind and given a rest too!!!)
So I got to enjoying myself with a whole day of sewing whatever I wanted!!! How good does that sound?!!! The kids were happy to play outside with friends and come in only when refuelling was required!
I happily took my scissors to an old quilt which was crying out to be made into spring/Easter makedo's and of course I gladly obliged!
I got to making this Easter Egg make do on an old bobbin - I fastened the Easter banner on with rusty pins and that way I can easily change it if I need to~
Next off I made this sweet as can be little bag and attached the Spring with pins again and put in some dried fir branches which kinda resembles sweet annie - well maybe if you don't look too closely! ;-)
These are quite bright pics but the quilt is in lovely spring colors tho' I have tea stained them and they do look more aged in reality.
And OH the luxury of having nothing pressing to do but sew! I even managed to cross stitch this freebie from Primitive Betty's - can't have too many peacock sticheries!
I'll probably make it into a pinkeep and sell it then - just didn't have time to do that as hubby just came home with dinner - my favorite, Chinese take away! Yumm!
Now that's pretty near a GREAT day in my book!
Hope you all enjoy your day!
Touch of spring
