Happy New Year!
It has been ages since I have posted on this little blog.
I won't bore you with the details of all that has been going on in my little world (hockey, holidays, returning to teaching full time for the first time in 14 years). Umm, yeah it's been a bit crazy, and blogging was, sadly, the last thing on my mind.
But I have soaked up these days of vacation, have welcomed in the new year with all it's possibilities, hopes and dreams, and am ready to sit down this morning to share a little project with you.
I wrote up the pattern to share with you.
I used a grey tone linen fabric to sew a little hexie pillow and added some dried lavender to the fluff.
I wish the internet had "scratch and sniff" capabilities--it smells heavenly.
Then the motif is hand-stitched to the cushion.
Easy and beautiful!
