starting and finishing projects is always exciting and there has been alot of that going on in my sewing circle!
cushions . . . . . . . . .
i know this is not a picture of cushions, but lovely home grown figs, wonderful colours in the fruit and foliage, but spot that orange image in the background!
we had been shopping to ikea and found this fabric range, 13 new cushions were made and they have given an instant makeover to my cousin's seaside home, where from every window of the house the garden is seen. you know that i always seem to have a dog in alot of my posts, well here is another! sammy just could not wait till the stool had its new cover on, he checked the fabric out to see if the colour way would match everything!
he gave us a look of approval
then there were the TAH DAH !!!!!! moments of the last few days, completed things!
marilyn's cushions finished using her mother's buttons from a collection she had, something old is new again!
and then there are jenny's, you have seen the images of the embroidery before
and this piece of old embroidery, a stamped design on linen, done by jenny's mother years ago. what a great memory to have of your mother's work.
and at sewing last thursday, there were only a few of us, but sharyn finished her quilt top! all hand pieced, the pattern SAVILLE ROW, by judy newman. the pattern is available through amitie and the finished quilt will be for one of sharyn's grandsons. lucky boy!
sally was knitting a baby blanket and it's nearly finished
and just started . . . . . . . . .
friends are joining me in half square triangle scrap quilts, dianne is very organised now for a random quilt ! look at this lovely tin, with doily within and the scraps so perfectly organised !
hope you have enjoyed seeing some of the things we have been doing. stay tuned there is a big celebration coming up soon and a give away with it. soon, it will be soon!
