One of my favourite designers, the talented Kate Popovski (aka LiliPopo), has just released a new embroidery pattern and my copy arrived last week. I have been itching to get going with it, but there was always something else to do and I’ve not managed to find the time.
Today, with the March sun streaming through an open window, I managed to sit down in my sewing room, just me, and stitch for a few glorious hours.
Oh! there are few things more satisfying than those precious moments when nothing else requires your attention, other than the needle and thread in your hand and making sure there is tea in the pot!
I love combining appliqué with embroidery and have done so to great effect in many of my own projects, but I think that these little LiliPopo designs are perfect to showcase just how effective this technique can be.
I shall need to carve myself out some sewing time next week in order to make a Mother’s Day gift. I have some Suffolk Puffs lying around somewhere; I’m sure I can rustle up something lovely with those 😉
First though, I shall need to post this wee glasses case to my aunt in Northern Ireland.
I just love days like today, when you can while away the hours just sewing, nothing else, just that. Bliss x
