Remember this?

I finally got to my sewing machine today. First time in more than a week! I know, how did I survive? I was not well last week and busy too. There always seems to be so much to do. This photo was taken last year when I finished sewing the first cushion covers for the window seat Bradley built me. (Did you always want a window seat? It was my fondest dream from a young age, and Bradley made my dream come true!) My window seat is quite wide because the window it sits infront of is 2.7 metres long! So I needed five cushions, not one as you see here. I made the five back cushions and four of the seat cushions (so nearly finished!), but seemed to get stuck on the fifth seat cushion. Nearly 12 months later I've finished the fifth seat cushion! I'm not sure why this cushion was so hard to do, it wasn't hard to make today so what was my problem? I think it's something to do with my superhero alter-ego, the Procrastinator. (Ever watched the Amanda Show? "I'll save you.... e-ven-tu-ally!") I'm so glad to have them finished! Now I want to make another set of covers so that I can wash them easily!

It's hard to believe that today is the last day of March! This year is really rushing by. Thank you for your kind comments about Miss 11's bunnies that she made! She was thrilled by them! She was worried that her bunnies wouldn't get any comments, I don't know why, because they are so very sweet. Well, here's looking forward to April. In April I plan to shun the Procrastinator and sew lots of warm clothes for my kids to wear. (It's finally thinking about being cool!) The weather bureau is forcasting 'rain' for Wednesday. I'm very excited! They haven't forecast 'rain' for a long time. Normally they only forecast 'showers' so I'm hoping for more water this week!

Congrats on getting the window seat finished looks like a great place to read. I too am always happy to live in (or at least near) Adelaide. That was just a little dig on my blog at anyone who thinks of Adelaide as a "backwater" LOL
Will be nice to meet at the exhibition!!

what a beautiful word is rain. and what a beautiful sound it makes as it hits the roof. i was watching tv last night and i saw rain on a program and i got excited just seeing it. how i would love to be stuck inside all day as it rained outside.
here's hoping!
