Some of my favorite quiet times are when I am sewing at my machine – or tootling around in the garden. This past week I’ve been focusing on getting some Union Jack pillows made for the shops. The pillows are quite fun to make and I’m able to dig into my stash and use up some of my favorite fabrics.Mini Jacks are made up in sweet floral fabrics in pinks, blues… …and shades of cottage reds and yellow. Because springtime is all about flowers, I thought that the little rose print would be sweet. A little bit of lace was added to the edges for texture. Making the little Union Jack pillows is like paying homage to my English ancestors – and I hear that there is a Lord who is on my mother’s side. Do I feel royal? Well no, not really.
Off to take a load into the shop!
Have a lovely day, y’all!
