Cushion Covers

I have made some lovely cushion covers this year. All for people who don't live at my house. Now, there's nothing wrong with that, but I had to explain that for you to understand my story.

I began today by spring cleaning. I'm not fond of housework and my house is looking sadly neglected. Later this week I have visitors arriving from Adelaide to spend ten days with us (Hooray!!!) so I thought I had better get my act into gear on the housework front and put the sewing on the back burner. I have one room almost done and to celebrate I thought I might sew a little. I made some half square triangles and then it occurred to me that I could turn them into cushion covers! I decided to lay one out on the couch next to Lily to play around with the layout. Once we were happy with it she asked who I would be sending this cushion cover to. She didn't believe me when I said it was for our couch. I had better make some more things for our house I think!

Beautiful just my colours :) in case you decide it needs to live somewhere else !! Sometimes you need to take time to make something just for you ...Hope things are good with you ...enjoy your visitors

That is wonderful ..... I reward myself with sewing & knitting all the time - even when I haven't done housework, sometimes it is just to celebrate not being exhausted (but that is another story) .... lol
