We’re not really having what you’d call a glorious summer in terms of weather are we ? But I guess that means that it’s less of a hardship to be inside sewing away… making pretty things for when the sun does shine, for your holiday or simply update a few homey things… cushions… quilts that kind of cosy, snuggly thing.
So, take a look at the Bargain Basement link in the menu bar of the Gone to Earth shop and you’ll find gorgeous fabrics being sold by the metre at a pretty attractive price. They are available in shorter lengths elsewhere in the shop but then the price is the same as usual.
There are more so even if you’re not tempted by these then you may find something that’s perfect for your next sewing project. Go take a look!
Oh! and the other piece of news is that I shall add fabrics and take them away over the coming weeks so stay in touch. You never know what you might find.
I thought I’d share these little hearts with you. They are embroidered on linen and are quite small as they’re intended to be used as hanging heart ornaments in small places, as key fobs or to hang on door knobs and generally create a pretty, slightly rustic and serene atmosphere around your home.
The reason why there are two trees in blossom is that the apple trees out in the field behind the house where in full bloom when I sat and stitched them. It really is difficult to better the perfume of apple blossom. Wonderful. The other one is a monogrammed letter, a flowery ‘A’ , obviously an ‘A’ isn’t appropriate for everyone but there are another 25 letters (excluding the A) to choose from. You could have one made for a special person or to identify a particular room in the house.
I’ve stitched them on linen as I love the texture that linen gives but it is quite difficult to show at it’s best in a photograph or maybe I just need to get better with the camera. They are filled with toy stuffing to give them their pretty plump shape and have twine strings so that they may be hung as ornaments or tied to keys. Your choice.
They would parcelled up and sent to you in a pretty little gift box tied with ribbon which is always a nice finishing touch.
