It's still a little manic in my neck of the woods, but I have made time this weekend for a little crafting.
I apologise in advance for yet another cushion, I think I have a problem; but that's my thing at the minute.
I finished this little beauty today, I love cable and it's just so detailed and right at home on my couch.
Here is where I confess; unlike the last cable cushion I made, this one didn't take me month, it took about an hour.
I snaffled this jumper up in the charity shop a few weeks ago and as soon as I saw it I thought cushion!
I snipped and sewed it and crocheted a row on the back to make button holes and added three Grandad buttons from my vintage button box.
I have to also show you this little beauty, I received in the post on Friday from my lovely friend Sue.
What makes this even more incredible is that Sue is sewing after having had an operation on her hand only 3 weeks ago!
Isn't she clever it's a beautiful fabric tray made with the most wonderful shabby roses fabric it's right up my street.
It has now taken pride of place on my messy shelf which is full of my favourite things, it's perfect for keeping my scattered bits and bobs in place.
Thanks again Sue xXx.
I also used it to hold my latest crochet; the softest sweetest little grannie squares for my next cushion, watch this space!
p.s. I just have to send lots of love and light to those affected by the terribe tragedy in Japan, I just can't get my head around the scale of the carnage my heart goes out to them all xXx
