Spring flowers in autumn...

Making flowers - work in progress
I'm in the midst of making fabric flowers today which remind me of spring and summer flowers even though it is in the middle of autumn here. It's cool and very blustery outside so I'm quite happy to be inside and up in my sewing attic happily absorbed with making these simple flowers, making them up as I go and working with some pretty pinks and reds.

Spring flowers - sneak peek
Here is a sneak peek of a nearly finished project I am working on. I sewed these flowers on over the weekend with Caitlin nearby playing with the buttons in my button tin. I remembered being a similar age, enjoying the very same thing, picking out favourites, wondering where some of them came from and their past lives...

First gorgeous mosaic, and second buttons, I don't know any child in the world who is not enchanted by a button tin. And I don't know any grown up who loves pretty things who is not still enchanted by a button tin! I certainly am! Your little flowers are delightful too!

Yes there's something about buttons that fascinates many of us. Thanks for your sweet comments Sue!

The flowers are very pretty - looking forward to seeing the whole project.
Great mosaic choices too - very colourful and inspiring. I tried to choose a favourite but couln't decide on one!

It sounds like a rather perfect moment in time, stitching away contentedly. Gorgeous mosiac. I don't think I will ever tire of eye candy.
