What do you think of my new header? I thought it was about time I had a change.
Anyway, here's that little flower I showed a few posts ago
And here is the rest of the garden.
A lot of the flowers are just pinned in place and I'm slowly appliquing them down, and having fun decorating with stitches, so this is still very much a work in progress.
For the flowers I've mostly used wool felt and added some cotton fabrics for variety and pattern.
The pockets don't stand out very well in the photograph but are much more obvious in real life. I'm hoping my plans for hand quilting will help highlight them even more.
The fires continue to rage throughout the Blue Mountains. It's been truely heartbreaking hearing tragic stories about people losing their homes and properties. The firemen and rescue workers are doing an amazing job and although homes have been burnt down or damaged no lives have been lost.
Lucky for us our area has been safe so far. If it looks at all like we may be affected we'll play it safe and leave straight away.
