It's January and my project is in Homespun!

 Oh my gosh! I haven't blogged all year! Yes these are the kind of jokes that are being told here at our house at the moment. It all began just after midnight on New Year's eve. I still haven't made any resolutions, but I'm feeling ok with that at the moment. Tonight Sophie and I went to the shops and while we were there I discovered the latest Homespun, with my cushion in it!



And here it is!


 It is a cushion I designed and made for Chookyblue in a redwork swap some years ago now. (You can see it here.) I love it, and Chookyblue loved it too so if you want to make one for yourself rush out and buy Homespun! It would make a lovely summer holiday project. Just looking at the photos in the magazine make me feel like stitching! Happy January all!!!
