There'snow getting out of here again today !!!

Beautiful red sky in the morning ------
cleared twelve inches off the wheelie bin earlier and now ( 6.30 pm)
there's six inches back on it !!
Daryl did make it to work but my car is still snowed in at the local garage !!

So this is what is on my workdesk this

Another Shabby Raggy Cushion made from vintage (Circa 1980)
Laura Ashley fabric

Also two cutie little "safety pin " bags :-
can never find one when I need one so now have a place of their own !
Have enough fabric to make another six ,
 so some will be up for sale !
The fabric is patterned with an assortment of safety pins so you know what's in
the bag.

Still have a selection of Coca Cola fabric Squares to make into
" A well known phrase or saying ",
and a tapestry and blue velvet to make into another cushion .
Fun Fun Fun !!

  1. Cushion looks great Anne - love the vintage fabric...did you ever email the instructions for the cushion - wouldn't mind trying to get mine finished soon...take care..Kirsti xxx

  2. Hi Kirsti, sorry re instructions --- haven't got email addresses from Jacqui and have tried to contact you through Etsy -- no joy .
    I know you wanted to make two cushions rather than one so will send you ins. on quilting the backs when I can get in touch :- not back in shop til 16th Dec.
    Have a couple of projects to finish , then will have a go at putting a tutorial on my blog if that will help.
