Look what I made....

Hello wonderful friends.... 

I have been trying to keep busy, ha ha whilst not moving much!

I have been working on the Satsuma Street design called Summers Flight....

Here is my journey..

Then I thought I could stitch some pieces of coloured fabric together for the back... By hand naturally as thee is no hope of getting any where near my sewing machine right now!

Colours I thought would go...

Stitched them by hand...

Then ironed them...

Stitched it together, slightly larger than the one the designer made...



The one the designer made...

I must admit it looks wonderful on linen... I may try another one on linen...ha ha when I can use my sewing machine.

I am happy with my attempt, it's good to try new things. As they say I have room for improvement!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Smiles to you all :)
