Green shoots and blue sky

Wild Flower pin cushion number 2!
As before this is made from pattern by Anna Maria Horner mentioned in my last post.

Fabrics were from my stash.
I think this little flower is destined to be a present. 
Also this week, I finished a hot water bottle cover.
It's for me this time!

My old one was looking decidedly tatty and I have made a few of these for other people.

The button was a present and is handmade by a  local artist Tania Clarke. 

The patterned fabric is by Phillip Jacobs for Rowan, I think it's Brassica Blue.
The plain fabrics are a selection from what I had on the shelf.

I used a piece of recycled blanket and attached strips of the fabric using stitch and flip to make one long piece, before folding it over and binding the edges.
The popper keeps it closed and the beautiful button is for decoration and so that I can admire it. 

I love it when the sun comes out and the shoots start to appear through the soil.
Have a good week.

Jeepers those flower pincushions are pretty! Just darling!

You have shoots where you are? How lucky for you! We are still under feet of snow and ice over here. But that's Canada for ya. :)
