Hello readers and my there have been a lot of you lately! Thank you for all your lovely comments. They are all read and appreciated and Emily Button's have been shared with the little jammers.
It's been a busy couple of days. The jammers are back to school and I'm enjoying two days off all to myself. Mostly I've been painting furniture interspursed with a bit of sewing and listening to my fabby new Tim Booth CD.
I signed up for The Monthly Make over at Annie the Felt Fairy's blog - as if I needed an excuse to make. I think it should be a weekly make! Anyway here it is my first contribution...
After deChristmasssing the living room I felt new cushions were in order as it was looking a bit naked and sorry for itself. So I made this bolster from a lovely vintage textured fabric with velvet ends.
I'm loving these zingy colours at the moment and have got a bit of a thing for vintage plant fabrics too.
So a nice rectangular one with mustard bobble trim edges and backing and a round one with green bobbles too!
Trouble is I don't yet know what else I'll make this month. What if I submit the cushions then make better stuff? You can view everyone's monthly makes here on the Flickr page.
Too busy to stop for a coffee in cafe this week so my trustee little van Mister Magoo brought me one home without spilling a drop! I'm glad he lived up to his design spec of being able to carry a tray of eggs across a ploughed field safely, Mr Citroen would be proud. MM has been a top van this week. He hadn't been out for several weeks so I was delighted when he started without me needing to encourage him with swear words. He then drove nicely delivering furniture and picking up coffee which left me thinking he really should get out more...
