I really have to use some of my fabric as there are new collections coming out that I have fallen for,I am also nearly finished on a pair of quilts, made to order, which will generate even more scraps. Yum.
Francesca asked for a lightweight throw for the summer, her room faces north and although warm needs colour in it. I had a stack of charm packs from Bonnie & Camille and let her cherry pick through them. I took one colour and bought a fleece throw from Dunelm, only £4.99 and made this.
Then she thought that a cushion would be nice, so I pulled these out of the scrap bin.
I found some decent sized bits and did this
I now have 6 of these and will square them up and join them, then quilt them onto some lining material rescued from CS curtains. I will make a simple envelope back and sew the lot together. This will be on her bed with the throw tonight, by the way it is highly unlikely that she will get to put any part of herself on the cushion, there is always at least one of the dogs with her and he will have the cushion, that's just the way it is here.
Dinner tonight is Pork steaks in a barbeque sauce with homemade oven chips and salad.
I am having a lazy day, i will be at work tonight and Sunday and Monday............then two weeks off Woo Hoo.
This is part holiday and part rest days, boy oh boy am I a happy bunny
