He was sent to school this morning knowing that the only way he'd manage to wangle another day off was to be actually properly physically sick/unconscious!
What a terrible Mother I am - it has been more lovely than I can say to have my head all to myself today and to finish off some WIPs.
Some stitchery on the pink and purple cat nightmare cushion:
Now onto something much more fun.
I've really enjoyed making this quilted cushion for Minx's little friend's birthday. Much more my colours :)
The small flower fabrics are from a bargain schmargain bundle of fat quarters (8 for £4.99!!!! - I know!!!!) from Hobbycraft. The large flower print is vintage Mary Quant from my Mother-in-law.
I'm now making a start on my messenger bag for this week's challenge and we've put up a sneak preview of our chosen fabrics. I'm not going to let the fact that Lucy's groovy fabrics are far yummier than mine get to me - really I'm not!!!
Why do I need to have fabric envy when I have in fact had the very exciting news that I have won Kaz's 100th blog giveaway!!!! Kaz does the most beautiful papercrafts and is making an embellished notebook for the lucky winner - ME!!!!
I'll be able to keep my beautiful new notebook in my 'quietly sophisticated' new messenger bag :)
Thank you so much Kaz - finding out I'd won your beautiful prize and also reading this from Monkee Maker has made this a very happy day indeed - apart from the fabric envy -grrrrrrrrrrrrr!
