In The Pink...

So Monday Blues is more how I am feeling, but I've managed to get the first make of the week under my belt already.

This was one of the things on my 'need to do' list; a birthday present for the girls' best friend for Saturday.

After tea, I turned these Walk In The Woods scraps...


...into this...


Water into wine, pah!

I had the notion to construct the front block in a scrappytripalong stylee, but the pieces were not conducive so I had to just piece it longhand.  It finished up at 15" square and plumps up nicely with a 16" cushion form.

Not thinking a real Staple Dress and a Super Tote will come quite so easily this week, but here's hoping xxx

  16. What little girl would not love this beautiful cushion? It's is beautiful. Some designs are quite tricky to cut. Not small pieces for quilts, I had the same problem with the Christmas stocking that I made. I hope you are feeling less blue and more pink now :)
