Latest creations...

I have been working on an order for a lovely lady and she wanted 4 shabby pillowcases. Since she said she had so much fabric I ended up using hers so it wouldn't go to waste. She sent me a lovely selection of Rachel Ashwell fabrics and some others to work with which all looked so pretty together.  She explained the style she wanted but left it up to me how to arrange the fabrics. I divided them into 2 groups as she wanted 2 matching pairs.
I thought these would make lovely soft pink pillowcases..


and these would make a bolder statement with the greens in the Charlie Brown and the red's in the grandfloral.


and here is the finished product.  I am very happy with how they turned out. I really love seeing something come together!




I hope she likes them! take care, Maryann

Hi maryann, Yes i do agree with the others an amazing job you have done on the pillows. Yes the pink almond tree is very similar to that of a cherry tree. I have one of those to but not to much flowering i dont think it is quiet cool enough here, I so wished it was. Im in love with all the cooler climate plants and im trying despretly to grow them for havent had any frost yet this year, that certainly helps them along. You have a gorgeous garden, and one day when mine is more established i will post it. Its only 5years in the making from a property with nothing on it just some native trees and some rather large pesty camphors. Until next time take care..Tina
