Two at Once...

You may remember my little bear friend Violet minding a little secret "violet" project I was working on..
Well the issue of Country Threads magazine it was featured in was waiting for me along with the previous one when I arrived home...
So if you are partial to violets like I am you may want to make my "Vintage Violets" cushion...
The other issue featured a quilt I made from a charm pack I received as a gift from a friend and I wanted to keep them altogether as they were so pretty and being my favourite French General fabric assisted my decision. I really wanted something special to finish off the "Wonder Quilting" friend Fiona from Bubzrugz was consulted and she outdid herself...see for yourself!
Truly, truly gorgeous.....I just loved it. I was so happy to see it in print. Thank you clever Fiona xx
It is such a nice way to use up a charm pack particularly if it is one you adore or a gift. Hope you like it too.
***Just a reminder...yes pushing my own barrow lol! If you are beginning to think about your Christmas stitching you will find some cute inspiration in my book "A Holly Cottage Christmas"...tags, door hangers, gift bags, a Santa cookie mat and more...
To purchase my book just email me at
Off to do the domestic goddess thing and create 'magic on a plate'....
Enjoy your evening,
Namaste and Blessings,
