Love Cushions

I was fortunate enough to manage to have a couple of weeks maternity leave without a baby, the first week was spent sorting the house, cleaning etc... but the second week I managed to do lots and lots of making.

The cushions in our living room were gorgeous and were made by my mother in law when we moved in but the fabric had gone bobbley, they weren't easy to wash were past there best. So I decided to make some new ones.  We had a lovely new multicoloured rug so I wasn't really limited to colour which was really nice.  I made 5 of them and I'm really pleased.  Think I'll be making some more soon and listing in my shop.  I really like the contrast between the sensible brown fabric and patterned fabric.

A friend of mine got married in the summer so I made him some cushions too. i hope they liked them.

It's been a long time.

I can't quite believe that I haven't blogged since March, but its certainly been a busy few months. I had a baby in May and before that we were busy trying to sort out the house for our new arrival. Isaac is now almost 6 months old, he is wonderful, but unfortunately is a bit of a party animal, so doesn't sleep much, day or night, so I haven't been having much spare time or energy, but I don't think any mums do.

I am trying to start doing a bit more crafting again. I did my first craft fair in almost a year yesterday and I have just started listing things in my folksy shop and taken it out of holiday mode. I have made a few new things, but need to take some photo's. So hopefully I'll get round to blogging at least once a week and start showing you what I've been up to. But in the meantime here's a couple of photo's of my best ever creation!
