Just a very quick post …. last night the rain stopped at about 8 pm – too late for anything other than a quick walk down to the village playing fields to give Ben a chance to stretch his legs and practise his ball skills. While I was down there the swallows were very active – swooping low over the grass with such grace and precision – and the odd wobble from one of this year’s babies!
Then I remembered – earlier in the summer I had drawn a swallow template and, using Photoshop, filled the outline with scanned vintage fabric, printed, cut out and pasted the swallows to the wall in my workroom. They look very effective and I thought others might enjoy them too. Just click here for the free pdf – and I’ve also included a blank template in case you want to create your own swallows. They’d also make a good applique pattern.
PS Have redesigned the Bustle and Sew site – hope you like it!!
What a lovely idea. I watch the swallows every evening swooping around the house at this time of year.
How very kind there is something very soothing watching swallows dipping in flight.
Kindest Regards Linda
I love those swallows.
What a lovely idea! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thank you for the charming pattern. Love it.
