...Solids. It's done. Complete. Needs packaging and posting. But I have taken advantage of a brief spell of quiet between visitors and sewn like a demon here. I've concentrated like, well, like I am seldom known to do. The iPad played Rhonda's podcast about Cindy, which is a great interview and has some very funny moments in it. Rhonda is developing a good dry British sense of humour. She will be talking with an accent soon if she keeps it up.
So I listened and sewed.
And here is what is going off to my partner.
The cushion looks a little sad because I didn't have a big enough insert to put in it to make it look properly puffed up. My extras are the little pin cushion I made with the Drunkard's Path scraps and a zippy pouch.
The back of the cushion is in a chocolate brown with hand stitched circles of various sizes stitched in the same colours of perle cotton used on the front of the cushion. And I just did a simple envelope back.
I'm hoping that my partner likes what I have made for her. I am a bit nervous about this one. But either way, it will be on its way to her as soon as I get it wrapped up and to the Post Office.
Please don't groan when I tell you that I got post today - really nice, make me smile post. Because I got an unexpected gift from the lovely Laura Jane and she is just the best. She sent me the gift just because. No other reason and I can't wait to meet her in person. We will be driving down to London together in June and sharing a hotel room as well. Oh, I lie - Laura Jane will be driving and I will be navigating. God help us!
A little purple cutting mat to take to London! Isn't that just the most gorgeous wee mat you have ever seen?! And some fabric. Laura Jane - you are absolutely fabulous. Thank you!! I cannot wait until London.
