Keeping it simple here, because stupid (aka Me) realised after dinner last night that the child coming for a sleepover today had a birthday recently. Said child is Helen's oldest friend. They have been playing together since long before they could actually walk or talk. Forgetting her birthday would be neither big nor clever.
Obviously my sewing time was rather limited. Therefore I needed to come up with a gift with a simple but effective design. I quickly pulled some of my most favourite fabrics and made a simple 12.5" block. Sashed it with white and got the perle out.
I backed the cushion with more of my precious MoMo and found yet another of my bottomless pit of long aqua zips, (Best thing I ever bought!) and got on with finishing it this morning.
With one hour to spare it is done. Helen is making the birthday card. We are in control - sort of, maybe.
Guess I might as well go clean the loos too, since I have time to spare. Oh the glamour of my life!
