A continuation of Cushion Covers and Aprons

Here is another cushion cover with a flip and sew 8" panel in the centre I also covered three buttons and sewed them in a row on the front, the back is a pink stripe. The aprons are made with Ikea fabric and the cupcakes on the pockets are from a pattern book called Quilt me Gorgeous, I really enjoyed making these things and whilst I was doing it England beat the Aussies at cricket and we won back the Ashes, a perfect day.

Cushions and Aprons

I made this cushion with selvedges I have cut from my fabrics, I love it, the pattern is on Moda Bakeworks, I put a stripe fabric on the back and it goes really well. I have seen other things made with selvedges on peoples blogs and I thought it was a good idea hope you like it.

Happy Day

Hello everyone, we spent yesterday at Tony's parents doing things to their front garden, this delightful pair are in their 80's and decided they wanted a little adjustment to their front garden we levelled and spread extra soil from the front to the back, we left a shaped piece of lawn in the centre and spread a liner ready to cover with delicious pink shingle it looks good already and the stones will finish it off. We had to move some shrubs too so by last evening we were both shattered but we had a good day. I am sewing today as much as I can, getting a little more of my blue/pink quilt pieced and also making items for my daughters charity sale. Tony is going fishing this afternoon and my son Andrew has a new girlfriend so he is always off somewhere with Becky. I will enjoy my peaceful day. Hope you all have a good day too. Oh I will also be listening avidly to the cricket England v Australia in the final Ashes test we are looking good but those Aussies have a habit of coming back at you.
