Settle petal!

In amongst the madness that is December & the last few days of our school year, there is just a little time for some stitching self-indulgence!
One of my 14 year old daughter's favourite sayings at the moment, in response to any family member who is feeling a tad frazzled & impatient, is "Settle petal"! Goes down a treat when the said frazzled & impatient one is me!! So in an attempt to 'settle' myself, I have my own strategy. When my day is manic, I take a couple of minutes & go sit & stare at these little buttons & muted colours, & calm is usually restored! (More of this project to be revealed soon).

  1. Oh that made me laugh - I haven't heard "settle petal" since I ws about 14!! I hate to tell your daughter but 14 year olds have been saying that for quite a while now.... :)

  2. Ooo, those little snippets of fabric and ric-rac and buttons look so lovely - no wonder they make you feel calm and collected! Can't wait to see a bit more of the project!

  3. Very calming. Can't wait to see the finished product. Sometimes I am too frazzled to even want to touch my sewing but as soon as I do I calm down. Cherrie
