Sometimes I get so "in the zone" with a project, that I have to finish it as soon as possible... its not always a practical approach when you have a job. This cushion was intended for sale in my etsy shop, but in my eagerness I seem to have messed up a seam (which would have involved a lot of work to fix) and so you are looking at a "second".... destined for our sofa. Not a bad thing, as I like it...
I have taken off most of my crochet covers and given them a wash. Some have been taken apart; the photo below is of a back I had made for a cushion. I love the colours and had forgotten I'd made this square... the colour scheme would make a wonderful blanket. All the colours used are Stylecraft DK.
I've just finished a busy period of work and now have a few days off. I am officially a "Tour de France" widow, which suits me just fine as I can craft away to my hearts delight guilt free.
The junk and charity shops have been kind to me this past week and I have picked up a few lovely tablecloths and fabric... This cross stitch cushion cover is made out of a small tablecloth and is backed with a super fabric found at a car boot sale.
Do any of you dear readers like doing craft fairs?
I am going to put the cushion covers in my Etsy shop... until I make up my mind about the craft fair.
We went to a neighbours barbecue at the weekend and I wore my winter jacket and sheepskin boots... I left before midnight as I was cold. It is July. The good thing about the weather is it is spurring me on to finish my crochet shawl/scarf... and also that I love the way our garden flowers look in the rain. So with that, I will leave you with a picture of our lilies and wish you all a wonderful crafty week x
