Bloom & Pretty Scissors

Hello friends

For the first time in ages I spent a few hours at the sewing machine over the weekend - pure bliss! I could have spent all weekend sewing to make a dent in the ever growing "to be finished" pile but I had too much fun trying out some recipes from my new cookbook, love it, and also catching up with some dear friends that were in town for a few days.  

This little pillow was my holiday stitching project - I'd taken it away with me and managed to get about three stitches done, ha ha!


Bloom Pincushion by M Designs
JCS March/April 2011 
stitched with recommended threads and 32 ct mint green belfast


I couldn't resist ordering the latest pair of Ginghers from Carol's DH and they arrived on Saturday. Such a pretty pattern :)



I hope you had a great weekend too!
See you soon xx

Your pincushion is lovely, Katrina! I've been meaning to get on my sewing machine, but haven't done so recently - must do that during the week.

Those Gingher scissors are beautiful!
