cushion lurve ... May 05 2013
Yesterday I spent the luuuurveliest afternoon with the most gorgeous 'home' girls ever!
It was the first of the makin it homey workshops. And I tell you what, tea and cake around the kitchen table, whilst leisurely stitching up a few pretty polka dot and floral cushions is *the* way to do it.
It was relaxed and informal, chilled and easy going... I even let the girls rifle through my own gorgeous stash of vintage fabrics! These are simple sewing workshops done the hello homey way, no fuss, no worries and absolutely no stitching experience necessary.
For me the sweetest thing in the world is seeing ladies who've never gotten their stitch on before, heading home clutching a pile of cushions they've just made themselves.
I reckon a couple of hours on a Saturday, the sharing of skills, coupled with some good conversation and a your own gorgeous handiwork to take away with you, is just about the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Don't you agree?
You do? Well why not come and get your stitch on too... upcoming dates on the makin it homey calender are :
Saturday 25th May - 'oh baby bunting' & other gorgeous home accessory makes.
Saturday 15th June - 'sweet Summer styling' - tips, tricks and a sweet summer project or two - all you need to pretty up your home and say 'hello summer'.
