Starting Something





At last I'm going to start a blog and it's so exciting. So many possibilities..in fact so many that now I'm starting I don't know where to begin...
Maybe by showing you this Flower Pot Cushion. I used fusible web to iron on the applique pieces, then blanket stitched round the shapes in matching - or sometimes contrasting - colours, then I added hand stitches to make stems and leaves, stitched on a few lazy daisy flowers and French knots and a couple of buttons.
I made another little applique picture of just one flower pot and put it in a simple white frame.
