Some of my very favourite novels.
From Oscar Wilde with Artwork by Laura Stoddart-from the book "Up the Garden Path A Little Anthology".
I never seem to get the time any more to smell those roses.
To take time to read and sew just for the pure joy of nothing better to do.
So- I thought you might like to take a little time this weekend - out of your busy schedules- and just sit in a cosy spot somewhere and stitch.
Just for the fun of it.
Had to put this photo in somewhere- they're the absolutely last flowers in my garden! Roll on Spring!
I designed this little pincushion with butterfly, for you to stitch in your cosy, relaxing spot.
Maybe with some relaxing music playing gently in the background- to take you back to a time when things were not so rushed.....
........And there was plenty of time to smell those roses!
The design I used for the pincushion (to add to your Bunny pincushion) I adapted from the Basket of Pink Cabbages design on a previous post.
Here are the page 1 instructions for making the "Take Time to Smell the Roses" pincushion:
As always- if you have any problems- please e-mail me at:
I hope you enjoy the stitching!
