I mentioned yesterday that the cushion for my Dad's birthday was finished, so here you are...
I'm sorry, dodgy indoor photos are all you can have I'm afraid, and now it is all wrapped up and ready for delivery tomorrow.
This is a fantastic pattern, and easy to piece, even with my mechanical complications; so if you are thinking about it, stop right now, and get on with it!
I used some great crossweave fabric I got at C&H, really soft and I love the way the colours change in the light. I picked up some grey and aqua too. A little light quilting with green Aurifil 40wt, having backed the front panel with some lightweight fusible fleece. Simple envelope back, and a 16" insert. Done.
So another tick; plus I just finished the hexie panel for my Mum's Christmas cushion, and sorted through all the bags of pressies I have been snaffling away for the last month. I have all the supplies I need to make the last Christmas presents, so my plan to be finished by this time next week doesn't seem so crazy after all!
I hope you all have a peaceful weekend; my thoughts, as I suspect yours are too, are with all those poor families in Newtown, Connecticut.
