considered treasure



I am delighted to present to you the EIGHTH edition of This Hour of Mine.



“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”

Audrey Hepburn

'This Hour of Mine' is a creative journey just for you, a way to ensure you find those quiet moments, an indulgent hour here and there ... the simple pleasure of taking time, whether an hour a day or an hour a week, is such an important ingredient for relaxation.

Every Summer I take my caravan to a place where I can have a little ‘working holiday’.   A place where I can feel the ‘sun’ on my face (I’m an optimist!) and appreciate the calmness in the day while I sit and make and be with my own thoughts and ideas.  Here I create a little studio space in my awning and this is where I sit and make a beautiful collection of my Flower Bed Brooches for The Linen Garden.  The process of making these little pretty clusters of petals is so relaxing, and the perfect way to daydream.  This Summer, while making this collection, I had the idea that the therapeutic cutting and stitching process would be just perfect for This Hour of Mine.  So here it is.  Project 8.  A Floral Affair.  An indulgent layering of flowers that results in the making of a trio of interior brooches for your home.

The making of A Floral Affair comes with clear instructions, the project may take you a few hours, a few days or a few weeks to complete.  It is considered in its design and the making stage has been constructed to take you as little as 6 hours or as many as 15 (and beyond) ... it is all dependent on the spare time you have and the details you choose to apply. 

There is no race to the finish line, no deadline, no competition to win, it is a simple indulgent, escaping and thoughtful project.  Sometimes it is not the finished product that is important but it is the indulgent moments of time you have taken for yourself, to work on the project, while listening to the radio or simply enjoying the peace and quiet.  You may purchase this project to make with friends/family and have arranged to meet to work on your projects together, if so, enjoy your conversations and treasure each others company.

This project makes a perfect gift and can be sent directly to the recipient, just leave their name and address in the notes section when ordering.  It arrives in a box with a ribbon tie and a tag with the recipients name hand written - simply send me a note when ordering with the name you would like writing on the gift tag and the address you would like the project sent to can be typed in the delivery instructions when placing your order
