An Abundance!

evening all!

i have been so blessed by people helping me with the cushions
this week was no exception...

as well as caroline promising more to come,
vanessa from 'flower photography' sent me this amazing parcel this week...

cushion inserts, fat quarters, yardage ..even the ribbon will be used!
buttons and candles for me...thank you kind ~

and a tin for little cards and a soap for me too!
whose spoiled ?
..i am!!

guess what..she didn't know..but
with all the kid's cushions to be made for the school
i couldn't have asked for more suitable fabrics..amazing!!

tomorrow i'm going to a 60th birthday..
so i made these for my friend,

i thought i'd show you and you can let me know if you think they'll be suitable.

they are a neutral colour..'cos i'm not sure what colour her lounge room is.

i embroidered one little mushroom tag...
and i was having fun

so i embroidered another little mushroom too!

a view from the back.

i know you're a bunch of mad party animals..
