Before I go I'd like to thank you all so very much for supporting my small business .....
most recently by purchasing my projects bags
honestly ~ I'm blown away by how fast your fingers must work!
and I'm so very sorry to all who missed out or got 'cart jacked'
but I will be busy stitching more very soon.





That's all from me ..... back soon!

Tilda + Bumblebees = V. Happy me x


 
Hello lovely friends
x

So, I'm today's stop on the Bumblebee blog hop!

Quite a while ago now I was asked if I would like to have a play
with some pretty Tilda fabrics from the new 
'The Bumblebee' collection


Tilda + Bumblebees = V.Happy me




Oh they are such beautiful prints .....


I had a little think and decided to make a cushion cover
with the pretty collection that I received.





I thought English paper piecing would work perfectly
with the beautfully petite prints
and I couldn't resist adding a little more bumblebee~ness
Bet you can't guess who's bagsied this?






The back is just a simple envelope style with some pretty edging







Here are links to all the other stops on the 'Bumblebee' blog hop
So many gorgeous things have been made.
