Staying Cool And Being Creative ..

Hello my dear friends,

our renovations are done for the moment which is so nice (I needed a break) but the weather is still quite hot here in Southwestern Ontario. I try and stay inside alot and keep myself cool and busy with all sorts. I have been thinking about a few changes I would like to make with the decor of our house. You know little changes, things like new pillows, wall decor and a few other things, so I am busy sewing and painting amongst others things. 

I have also using my time inside to work on a few custom orders that I had to finish
Three of my lavender sachets with seam binding roses ...

... for one lovely lady and a pincushion ...

... made from a pewter tulip candle holder for another.
Now they are done and all wrapped up just waiting to be mailed.

I have also worked on my 'mystery' items that arrived in the mail last week and I will be sharing them very soon. It seems that I am mostly into making pincushions at this moment. I have even been out and about finding new treasures that can be transformed into little pin keeps and I have found some very neat pieces.

But as I said ... mostly pincushioins. I am also working on these right now ...

... lovely fabric flowers.

I am making these with the thought of using them in our living room. I have only made a few so far and I still need to think about the greenery for them. Right now I am not quite sure about them just yet. I am hoping, that I will like them more with leaves. Once they are done and I am happy with what I have made, I will tell you all about them then.

So, do stop by some time again and visit me here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
