Cushion Covers

When making the first Piccadilly Circus quilt, there were lots of off-cuts from the strips used for the Dresden Plates, so I decided to sew them up in to smaller Dresden Plates to make some cusion covers - one Dresden Fans with Hello Darling fabric trim, two Dresden Plates with grey background and two Dresden Plates with white background.


The bedroom reno is moving along.  Electrical work was completed last week

and there was lots of sanding over the weekend with a little bit of painting to test out the colour.  Quotes have come in for the floor to be polished and a built-in wardrobe.

Found a lovely surprise in the garden this morning.

These have been in the garden for years and never flowered before.

Last night while watching tv, I started a crochet jacket for ChaCha.  I made the same jacket for Michael when he was a baby, so I've had the pattern for at least 34 years.

Almost the weekend - yahoo!

Hello Lynda,

I do love the cushions, hope you are keeping these for your bedroom. Your garden has been blessed, the bloom is lovely. It is great to make things for the Grandies that you made for your own, the pattern looks like it will be made up quickly. Enjoy your Sunday.

Happy days.
