This last week after bragging that my heavy intake of Echinacea tea is the reason why I have not had cold this year, fortune bit me on the bum and gave me this awful cold that is doing the rounds. I feel like crap and my lungs are burning from coughing. To keep me occupied I have been busy sewing, isn't sewing or any crafting great for keeping the mind busy and the problems at bay at least for a while?
Back in September I was looking for some crafty stuff that I could take on holiday without needing my sewing machine. I settled for learning to crochet and a tin of little hexies. I sat and connected them all together with tiny little stitches until my fingers actually bled. I can't work with a thimble at all and have since been advised by Jane that masking tape works a treat, and it does! So fast forward a good 6 weeks and I have actually taken the front panel and turned it into a cushion.
I attached some little hexies to the back of the cusion and made some piping for the edges, with a row of hexies, they look like pixie bunting all folded up:
Here it is a little wonky but I love it:
