Although they looked good on a light background, I decided to go with a darker one to bring out the colour .
Ikea came up trumps with a great backing fabric, just the right colours!
And a turquise binding just to finish it off!!
And today-our summer finally arrived and I took a trip to Mottisfont National Trust gardens. This is famous for its rose gardens, at their best or just over at the moment.
And finally- you may recall tht I won 4 great Kaffe Fasset charm packs from Creative bug- well decided to experiment with one pack. I wanted to try out the snowball pattern- heres the result:
lots of badly matched up seams, noticeably in the inner squares that are spotty fabric- too noticeable! This will need a lot of practise! I think I may come up with a different plan for the rest of the charm packs....
Thats all for now folks- beach time tomorrow!!!x
