ooo what a glorious weekend we have been having :) a lovely start to May today toooo ... sun has been out all day but has been a wee bit breezy but I have been in doors playing with my sewing machine and getting the finishes finished yipppeee :)
as you can probably tell from the title I've made some cushions ..lol and I've really enjoyed getting out the fabric and notions and having FUN ...lol
I was asked where I had got my daisy fabric from and it was from www.sunflowercornerquilting.co.uk not sure if they are still trading as I went to a huge quilt show at the Malvern show ground a few years back and got oodles of fabric from there which I am using now ..... I knew it would all come in useful hehehehe.
I have also finished two of the three boxes I had totally, again thanks to LynnB's instructions , AND there's more heheheh .... I've finished one of my official UFO's the amazing grace biscornu stitched with the threadgather's silk on silkweaver fabric soooo with out further ado here is the photo with them all on and done :)

|All this weekends finishing :)|
I was asked as well how long I kept the fabric in the tea and coffee solutions ... well to be honest I was watching the Royal Wedding sooo I think it was about 30 mins each time .. I just kept nipping in and checking if the colour was about right ..lol

If I have shown you these next bits before blame it on the sunshine we have been having heheheh .. but here is my scissor fob from Sandra it is soooo cute with the wee mouse on it :)

After all the excitement I think I shall just go into the craft room and go eeekkkkk a bombs dropped in it hahahahah .... I am such a messy worker when messing around with fabric and such like .. I need more working and cutting out space than I have got at the moment as I have to spill out into the kitchen when doing stuff ..... ho hum keep me out of mischief for a few hours sorting it all back into the correct place it should be ..lol
so I think this is it for today's waffling .. the kettle is going on and I shall be daintily sipping while deciding what next to do .. any suggestions ???
happy stitching and squeak to you all soon .. hope you all enjoy the rest of your bank holiday
happy stitching love mouse xxxx
