Hugs to you Mary, I know what you mean about needing the smell of someone you have lost, I recently came across a silk scarf that belonged to my Grandma and it still smelled like her. It was like I was transported back in time!
The fabric is great. Take good care of yourself, Ada :)

That's great fabric- not one I have seen before! And perfect for this pillow! Did you have another purpose for this originally??? ☺

Sarah Pings said...

love this. Even your raw edge is neater than my turned.

Hope said...

Now there's a good idea! Might try a raw edge one myself, one of these days.

Oh Mary, I'm giving up sewing and blogging...so I'm just going to read your blog lol!!!

I've lost my mojo..I think it will return when the builders leave O_O

Dust and noise are not conjuiceve (spelling!) to being crafty!

The umbrella print is so UK just now but they also need wellies! Fed up with this wet summer!

But what is that ? A ray of sunshine - I'd better get out there quick!

Just when I thought I would be able to be untempted by this fabric, you had to go and make this adorable Union Jack. Really, Mary, what were you thinking? This is SO cute!
