Pay it forward gift
Pay it forward gifts to Julie as she lives only 30 minutes away from me. It is always such a treat to visit her and be inspired by the loveliness of her home and garden. I made Julie a Happy Dog tote which is a pattern by Birdhouse Designs. The stitched dog is to remind Julie of her beloved dog Mr Fluffy who died about twelve months ago and, apart from the linen, the fabrics were gifted to me which I thought suited Julie as she is so clever at giving old things new life. I found a gorgeous magazine that I knew Julie would enjoy and had lots of fun in a second hand shop finding some little treasures for her as well.
As I said, it is such a treat for me to visit Julie and she let me wander around her home with my camera, I have included some of the photos below. There is so much to see and inspire. I didn't leave empty handed either, Julie gave me four dressmaking fabrics and lots of walnuts from her tree. Thanks Julie, I loved visiting you, Wendy xx
