My garden is growing...

This was what I shared last time.....

Four little birds have been pieced...

Then added to the corners with some low volume 


Finally, some more random low volume squares and rectangles were added to the next round,

and finally a 2" border.

I still need to add some French knots as eyes for the 

little birdies!

I'm looking forward to 'planting' some flowers in that 

low volume border....

In the meantime, here is a photo of my beetroot 


Pickling seems to be the option my husband, the cook 

of the family has chosen!

Happy days!

All ready for St Patrick's Day

 in my new green linen and Liberty "Sawtell" dress!

I took my time making sure it was as perfect as I could 

make it!

I'd had this piece of linen for quite some time and really 

wanted to find the perfect pattern!

On a whim I joined the "Curated by In The Folds" group where, for a monthly subscription, you receive a pattern, sewing techniques, hints and lots of support during the making process.

There is a link here if you are interested in the concept.

I took my time binding many of the seams with a 

treasured piece of Liberty I bought in Bordeaux in 2014.


And of course I had to add a "Kylie and the Machine" 

label that says, "YES, I made this"!

I also did top stitching across the back yoke, the 

neckline and around the pocket shield.

It is exciting waiting to see what the next pattern 

release will be ?!

Happy sewing!
