To have a lot of love and a happy home

Free motion sewing ❤

I thought I’d do an easy post after that last one (Taylor Swift much?), it was therapeutic, I have no regrets. I did not, however, expect to be hit by this huge wave of almost overwhelming vulnerability, and yet somehow, I was able to remind myself of the fact that there is a price to pay, when one chooses to be their most authentic self, and speak their truth. So lets keep it light this time, ok? So I’ve been making these appliqué pillows for my couch that I thought of making a while ago, drew some sketches and only just came round to realizing those ideas.

Sketching out ideas

In January, I wrote about how I’d become captivated with the idea of applique sewing, I decided to give it another go and I’m fascinated with the results. I started off  with the ones I thought would be easy to bring to life, like the hearts.

Love garden,  let it grow.

Then I moved on to “The Dancing House”

Sad and lonely house 😦

Windows and hot air balloons make for a much more cheerful “Dancing House.”

That’s it for now. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
