Vintage SeedPackets by Clothworks... I work well on deadlines of 5 HOURS!



YOU know how much I love gardening...so imagine my surprise when one of my

MY colours too..IMAGINE THAT? 
And would you believe I did this all in ONE DAY....
TODAY in less than 5 hours! .....and with one my dearest friends -JO who is here 
visiting...She was OK with my deadline...in fact encouraged me...
while she sat on the deck and watched me ....

SEEEEEEEE, what LOVE CAN DO? lol






So what did I  design first?....A slip cover for a pillow....I love this idea of making 
slips with ruffles of course-- to put on my pillows for each season...they wash up nicely,
they look great, and I can make more ruffles...
LIKE I need any excuse to make RUFFLES?.....wink..



imagine that ?..someone actually wanted this beautiful bag...lol
I am laughing here, because I had all kinds of plans for it...
Being I love stitching outside it was going to be my Tammy bag for the GARDEN...
But noooooooo, someone saw it and begged to take it off my hands..
What could I say....lol
"OK..... " :)

I chose the golds in this collection that had vintage seedpackets all over it..
I just love it..and to compliment the overall pattern I added the tomatoes from their collection for the ruffle.. and then a lovely black and white ( kind of like an old newspaper print) for the pocket....



Ohhh this is the back of it...I did not add a pocket because I wanted to showcase
the beauty of this vintage Tammy Bag....Now the more I look at it..
I may just have to make myself another one.....psssst Clothworks, I don't have
any more of this fabric...hint hint hint....
NO really, I have to make one for ME ! 
It is so Vintage! 



Will you look at the side of this bag...look SEEDS? I just love this..
Maybe I will reconsider sending it off....chuckling here...
MY word is my word...
dang it...…:)

By the way...Clothworks PEEPS are just amazing


Well that is for me today, I have Tuna Steaks to prepare for supper...JO, was to leave yesterday
she was only to be here for one day and night...but funny enough, she thinks our home is A SPA....
So she is extending her visit....Ok, she is sitting by my side and laughed out loud..." YOU BEGGED ME TO STAY" ...yes whatever you say DEAR!

Gotta run, hope this inspired YOU...You know I work very well under pressure..

TOODLES.....

ps. I heard Cori from ChitterChatterDesigns, is up to something with this collection too...
Creativityamongstchaos . She tells me she may have a REAL chicken...not  like mine which is just ceramic...but did you notice it has gingham look to it.... YOU JUST KNOW ...she will inspire us all....



ps. for those PEEKING IN ....we had to move our ANNOUNCEMENT TILL NEXT FRIDAY....


WE are gearing up -----..it will change many of you in many different ways... 
Here is another Testimonial..

I have to share this, one day I was out all day, I

You are brilliant. Love Carinne

      United States, her name is Chickana.... she suits our decor perfectly..I always wanted something like her in my kitchen....She sits on the window sill...

  29. I don't know where I have been to miss this post but sew happy I have now seen your fabulous pillow slip with ruffles. This fabric is uber fun and will be perfect for your restful deck and red chair. I LOVE your Tammy bag. You might add a pocket on the back with cutting the fabric to match the design so as to not lose any of it being seen. Another wonderfully creative project you have shared...thank you. June JOY...
