Well if you read my last blog you will know I am drifting into machine applique / embroidery. So after a kind prompt from Poppy Cottage who directed me to a lovely tutorial from MarmaladeRose, I had a quick, yet undisturbed 15 minutes of trawling the internet for ideas and inspiration and decided to have a go at the popular 'cottage'.
I even like the wrong side.

Then I snuck off to the back bedroom, cut, ironed ( my scraps are really scrappy), then sewed my version. Only thing I changed was instead of using an unpicker for holding down the fabric, I used my extra long, super-duper pins ( I won them from The Ribbon Girl).
Any more useful links you can share or ideas please let me know. I am ready to learn.
I will keep snatching moments and hopefully remember to blog some of the fantastic sewing creations out there.
