Janome Embroidery Machine

I painted this shamrock using a stencil cut from freezer paper and using an old tooth brush I applied the Markal paint sticks. I then used my new embroidery machine to write the Ireland underneath. This is the first time I have used an embroidery machine and I think I am going to enjoy it.
I will give more details about the machine in my next blog. If you would like to connect with Seams Sew Simple facebook page you can find it at
In the mean time I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather. Tip of the Day!  Don't forget your sunscreen.

The Farmers Journal

The Farmers Journal have been running a patchwork project for the last few weeks. I have been buying the issues but have not started the project yet. With so much on the go at the moment it will have to wait for a while. Working on Seams Sew Simple web site at the moment, lots of hard work ahead.

I took these photo's in my garden a few weeks ago. I love the robin posing in the middle.
What a great place to find inspiration.
