This was such a fun little project that I'm tempted to make another one in different colour. I only did a little bit every day but, I think you could easily make one in a morning.
The pattern is from Sandy Henderson's book, Sewing Bits and Pieces. I love this book , it is full of small and bigger sewing projects, a lot of it is also to spruce up something like a table cloth, an old T-shirt or cardigan, but there are also bigger projects like a quilt or a skirt.
At first I was a bit concerned that my pincushion looked a bit Christmassy with the red and green colours and the dahlia looked more like a poinsettia but, with the button covered in some fun Kaffe Fassett fabric, I think it is has come out well.
I am so keen to start baby sewing but, as we don't know if it is a boy or girl yet, I have to remind myself to wait. I will have my first scan on Thursday, 5th August, then I should be 12 weeks. I have to say that so far, I have not found this first trimester too easy. They never tell you about the difficult bits except for a bit of morning sickness. Pregnancy is definitely not for sissies. I have had two early scans so far and baby seemed fine with a strong heart beat on each occasion. I have been signed off work for a bit to rest and I am definitely doing that. Hubby has been very supportive and caring and it has been so nice to stay in for a whole weekend rather than to rush off somewhere.
Anyway, enough of my ramblings, I hope you're all well.
