I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was pretty quiet. We should have been planting corn, but the weather has just been so odd.
On Sunday morning at 9 am when I headed out the door to church (late!) I could see my breath. It was 36 degrees. That’s just not corn planting weather.
I’m more of a cowgirl than a farmer, but…even I don’t get excited about planting crops when everyone is still wearing their insulated bib overalls.
Since it was so dang cold, I decided to sew after church. All my relatives and friends in Missouri were planting flowers! Jealous! I couldn’t plant flowers, but I could still think about them.
I finished this little flower off into a pillow for our bed.
In March, I wrote about how I was unsure of how to finish this project and a sewing friend suggested I try machine appliqué. It worked! I’m not a pro, but within 20 or 30 minutes this little flower was secure.
Best part – I didn’t even have to change my thread. I already had a light yellow in the machine.
To make the pillow, I used this wonderful tutorial from the Happy Housie. It is an envelope pillow, which allows for easy washing. Best of luck with flowers, gardens and sewing in the next few weekends. I sure hope I get to get outside and plant some flowers, but until then — I suppose sewing them will do!
Nice job on your flower pillow. The fabrics you used are fun too.
Thank you Laurel – they are from the “pot luck” line.
