A couple of years ago now, I made a lot of cushions for the cottage and I enjoyed making this "Love" one. I think I will make some more "Love" cushions soon, but for some reason, today, it was "Home" that sprung to mind.
I love my home, I really do. There's nothing as comforting, as cosy, as heart warming, as reassuring or as personal as your home, I find. And today was the sort of day where I wanted and indeed needed to revel in "homeyness" (yes, I know that's not a real word but I do like it).
Come on, Hen, find that lovely wool fabric you bought in the Winter then; that divine bobble trim you bought at the CL Fair; spend ages cutting out letter shapes and fiddle with combining lots of pretty fabrics. The result? (Please excuse the less-than-perfect photos taken in today's less-than-perfect light.)
I think I like those; yes, they're rather homey, quite cosy and jolly, well, jolly! And, they are being taken to the fair. Yes, they are!
Did you spot the flowers in the background? I picked these from our front garden amidst the gloom of yesterday. The red roses smell divine and I've been enjoying their fragrance as I've sat at my worktable. I've also been enjoying that rather cute kitty card, from my sister to update me on what's going on "up North" and you may have spotted a "Thank You" card, that being from one of my lovely customers. How privileged am I, not only to find people want to buy some of my handmade thingies but that they even thank me for them, too, with these lovely cards and even gifts!
Just so you know, I do love all the cards and all the comments left here that have been an added bonus to my blogging adventures. The cards are usually on display somewhere in my den. The door lets you know that you are indeed about to enter "Hen's Den"!
I hope you are all enjoying your own home sweet homes today...
