Shabby Roses Cushion

This is my Shabby Roses Cushion it matches the quilt that I posted last week, the pattern is again courtesy http://jennyof elefantz I have loved doing the cushion it was a lovely thing to sit and do in the evening because I could hand quilt it and it will look lovely in my bedroom. I have been to sewing group today and I showed this cushion in the show and tell bit they all loved it I showed them the quilt last week. We are having lovely weather at the moment lots of warm sunshine but it still gets quite cold towards evening but summer is trying very hard to get here. The flights here seem to be slowly getting back to normal, a lot of people are arriving home very tired but glad to be home, there is no place better.

A Lovely Weekend

What a lovely weekend we had here, the sun shone and it was warm enough to eat outside. I did quite a lot of work in the garden, the picture you see is a pulsatilla it is so pretty, I bought it last year and I forgot where I had planted it but here she is in all her glory. I have been sanding and re-waxing a chest of drawers from my bedroom and I am really pleased with the result it looks like a different piece of furniture. I also painted my mirror with the gold metal frame. Tony finished the shelves in the bedroom which I now have to paint and he hung the mirror with the cherubs which looks charming, so my bedroom is coming on. Yesterday Kathleen and I went shopping we had a lovely day first we did the charity shops and then we had coffee then we trawled the shops looking for a jacket to go with my dress for the wedding and I found a lovely cream one, I also tried on headwear not quite sure yet what to go for. Then we did the weekly shop, a day well spent. What do you think of this volcano business is'nt it awful all those people stuck in the wrong place all over the world, the dust cloud does not appear to be getting better although there is talk of maybe some longhaul planes taking off, of course the crews and planes are also stuck in the wrong countries I do not envy the people who have to sort that lot out. Hope you all had a good weekend.
