Oh my goodness is my favourite thing to say as of late. As in ‘Really we have to wait until to September to find out what happens next? Oh my goodness!’ (For although I have no TV I have one particular weakness that I download on iTunes, and oh my goodness that was a cruel cliffhanger.) And ‘Did I really leave the burner on while we were eating dinner? Oh my goodness!’ And then there’s this one:
Oh my goodness there are so many online tutorials for adorable fabric flowers!
I was also loving the one featured about halfway down this post from the new issue of Cotton and Paint (from Japan).
This one was made with scraps leftover from my new pink polka dot skirt. I traced the bottom of a bottle of paint and cut 25 pink circles and 6 black circles, then stitched them all together by piling them onto the needle and then moving the petals around until they spread out. Then stitch back up to the middle, add the button and keep the thread very tight so the petals pucker a bit. Sew a pin back to a small circle of felt and hot glue the felt to the back of the flower, and all done. All done so quickly you might say ‘Oh my goodness, I could make these all day!’
Or that could just be me.
