The last couple of weeks have been very busy with work events, but fun ones, so no complaints! I managed to whip up a birthday present:
I love making these giant cushions, perfect for when you're reading in bed, or just want to fill a large chair! The sewing is very simple and therapeutic; the cushion pad is a 26" from Dunelm Mill. My other make in the last fortnight was a little more complicated:
As part of my fundraising job, I went to a Ball on Friday, where the dress code was black tie with a hint of the town we live in! Lots of people went for the town colours, and several wore brooches. I opted for making this Tudor rose, which is featured in our cathedral, and putting it onto a clutch bag.
It took ages, but I was pleased with the result! The Ball was a huge success, and a wonderful evening. It hasn't been conducive to much sewing though, but I have done a bit of laying out fabrics and making plans...
Ebay kindly sent me a £10 voucher, apparently they were missing me!! I was going to delete it, then thought they might have some Liberty fabric... Sure enough, I managed to purchase the above squares, and these bigger pieces -
I have a plan, but it may take a while! Finally, having admired Julie's beautiful Little Cotton Rabbits for years, I now have one of my own :-)
She looks very happy on my wooden spool... Wishing you a great week.
