Thanks for everyone’s lovely comments and love. I’m still suffering from the lovely BB but I am feeling a little better, and hopefully on my way to recovery. Thankfully I don’t have to be back at work for another week, so I plan on being healthy and having some new home made goodies by then.
I have been using my time wisely and sewing my granny squares together to make two lovely cuddly cushions. They aren’t finished yet so I have no pics to share.
I have, however been busy making some new lovey cushion covers for my sofa. After watching Mamma Mia whilst on holiday in Scotland last year, I discovered and fell in love with Josef Frank textiles. After a quick internet search I realised his fabric was too far out of my budget and too hard to find.
I realise this fabric is nothing like Josef Franks, but it is lovely and bright, and fit my budget and urgent time frame. I really wanted to get rid of the fluffy faux fur covers I inherited from my lovely friend Ness when she left me here in the UK to move home and find her dream man (in 6 months!!).
I have not used the most perfect sewing techniques to make these, and for that I am a little ashamed, but I am an impatient stitcher (I am also my mother’s daughter). This I am trying to rectify, but when I want something NOW my 'slow sewing' goes out the window.
