As you may have gathered if you notice my buttons on the right of my blog I have joined Pinterest
I am hooked.
It is basically a place where you can store ideas/images online, a virtual sketchbook if you will.A few weeks ago, I pinned a picture of a printed love note duvet cover which I had seen at Sally Jean
As part of my my daughters 18th birthday present, I made her something inspired by the duvet cover.
It is a cream patchwork throw, with hand embroidered quotes on it, and also buttonhole stitched hearts made from some antique lace which I had. I pictured her in her room at college, snuggled up under it watching television, (unfortunately I then thought of wild college parties and it being covered in red wine!).
Thankfully she loved it.
It has since inspired me to make another present for a friend, which I am going to start selling in my shop. A hand embroidered quote cushion.
What would yours say?
