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!
