Here is a bolster cushion I finished recently.
Some pansy fabrics can be a bit 'old fashioned' looking but this one is Absolutely Gorgeous and has lovely matching prints.The cushion is a Sally Giblin design - I love her range of patterns, a lot have nice sentiments like this one.
Another pretty finish is this wee bag, a Birdhouse pattern. Very sweet.
|Cant get away from the hexies!|
Here's a pile of the books I've read over the last few months; they were piled up on the bookcase so I thought it a good chance to share them. I just finished The Wedding Quilt last night, and really enjoyed it - when I first started it and saw what year it was set in I was a bit concerned about all the Elm Creek news we would have missed out on, but I do think it was quite well done.
The Diana Gabaldon was a Christmas present and again very much enjoyed, as was the Friday Night Knitting Club, a second-hand book shop find.
And more pretties, but of a different kind!
[And what am I looking forward to today? — Picking our Golden Queen peaches!! (Recent rain has made them slightly spotty so down they must come; plus the sheep and the pig have started camping under the tree!)]
Thanks for visiting, and have a good day - hopefully you can squeeze a bit of stitching into it, too,
