Well, the eleven day wonder break has sadly come to an end, the only thing keeping me afloat is the promise of another Bank Holiday at the end of May!
I did manage to make quite a dint in my list of things to do, I did complete my table, I did plant lots of stuff up and tidy the garden, I did make some cushions. The only thing I didn't complete was making my Roman Blinds.
Life and work got in the way, I did have to do some work at home this week and had to briefly pop into work which took a little of the shine off my week off.
I will get these made though, I have had the fabric for months now it's a disgrace!
I did make cushions though, I hunted out my fabric and found a metre or so of Cath Kidston Cotton Duck that I forgot I had bought! I knocked up a few cushions in different styles using my Cath fabric.
I made a standard cushion with velcro fastening:
An envelope style with double ribbon fastening:
Standard cushion with middle zip fastening
And lastly my second mini hexie cushion. On Friday I spend many hours infront of the TV watching the Royal Wedding and I sat and finished sewing these little hexies together by hand. I started these ages ago and I keep dipping into them. As these little hexies took such an age to hand sew together, I think I will keep this one, it is indirectly my Royal Wedding Cushion :)
I also made the best of my last day off with some Car Booty, I bagged a few bargains, I'll show you later this week. We finished the day off up the River Coquet, him fishing me sewing on the grass.
He didn't catch much, and there was a far better fisherman in attendance all afternoon.
Can you see him in the very middle ~ a magnificent Heron!
Hopefully I will be back soon with photos of Roman Blinds :)
p.s. have to say I'm becoming increasingly vexed at the blogger photo and dodgy spacing shenannigans ~ growl!
p.p.s. Thank you all for your support regarding my little Folksy shop, it's rather scary but quite exciting too, special thanks to Tina, Nic & Laura my first three customers mmwwwahhhhh!
