In my garden this morning .....

I'm glad I waited until this morning to sew together my "Little House Pincushion" by Natalie Bird ..... because then I got to go out into the garden and look for somewhere nice to take a photograph .... and on my wander through the garden (which is not very big I might add) I found a red spot to photograph this cute little pincushion ......

As usual I have changed it a little bit ..... because I never really stick to a pattern completely .... and I have appliqued and blanket stitched the little house and trees on instead of needleturn applique ...

I loved the fabrics I chose and the design and this went together surprisingly easily ....

And on my wander ..... I saw that my wisteria is flowering beautifully ..... it looks gorgeous in the sunshine today ....

I can now tick off another project from the "Red Home" book by Natalie Bird ..... I think I love just about everything in it !!

I can thoroughly recommend this book as one of my most used purchases in recent times ....  enjoy your weekend ..... wherever you may be .... I hope it involves a little bit of stitching time !!
