Fairies at the bottom of our garden!

by Helen on August 4, 2013

Picture the scene …. a warm(ish) summer’s afternoon in the summer house at Coombe Leigh.  Feeling relaxed – cup of tea, a biscuit (or two!) and some gentle stitching.  Then the peace is shattered as two excited  furry faces appear ……..

Come and see Mum!

 “Mum! MUM!!! M U M ! !! ! Come and see – come and see NOW!!” 

Toadstool Pin Cushions

 “There are fairies living at the bottom of our garden!!” 

Not really !  Just the photoshoot for my first pattern for the September issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine – little toadstool pin cushions – great for those Christmas Fairs, as little gifts or just for yourself.  Just the tiniest scraps of fabric and felt, vintage cotton spools, styrofoam hemispheres – and a lot of fun!
