Well what's a girl to do?!
Treat herself of course! Sooooo I indulged in a little wine and a little online shopping....
I also settled down to watch Bedlam on the old brain numbing box last night. Have any of you UKers seen it? My god it gives me the heebie-geebies! I'm not good with horror. I slept with my light on until I was 15 after watching Poltergeist and IT as a kid (no my parents didn't know I was watching them!) I really shouldn't do it to myself. You know most people hide behind cushions when they know a scary part is coming up in a film? Well I've found a new way of hiding (and it doesn't make you look like such a scaredy cat!) ......make your own cushion and become totally engrossed in getting those stitches right just when you know something is going to jump out!
Ta-Dahhhhhhhh! As promised for daughter number one - a pink and purpley cushion. This one is made up from nine blocks using Jan Eatons 200 Blocks book (block number 3 called Target Practice.) The back is just striped trebles (ds in US terms) and took foooorrrreeeevvvvveeeeerrrrrr. Or so it seemed! (and I just realised I didn't get a photo of the back so you'll just have to take my word for it!) I can quite see the benefits of using fabric for the back of cushions and believe me, if I'd had any - I would've used it!
So two down and one to go. Although daughter number 2 has asked for a white and teal cushion. Guess what? I have no white and teal in my over flowing basket. Every other colour under the rainbow but no white and teal. So unless I can persuade her into another colour, I shall be taking a trip to my LYS pretty soon. Oh poor, poor me! ;-)
