Sweet Caroline!

hi ! good afternoon!

monday...and off running..no not literally..sorry cate!

this morning i visited with some georgeous girls doing a course locally,
called 'way to go', coordinated by the local women's health centre.

i was just there to encourage them...
for twelve weeks last year...feb to april...4 days a week..
a group of us got to know each other really well
and some wonderful women...ruth, jo, and anna,
 helped us to open up our lives.
 We confronted fear and sometimes pride,
getting to know ourselves better in a safe and affirmative environment.

i took along my 'meadowsweet' apron, my crocheted cushion,
my new, new york cushions and the 'mushroom cushions' i haven't shown you yet...
and
guess what..they liked them.
i hope it will inspire somebody to have a go...at anything they want to!

speaking of cushions...
this sweetie was made by caroline,


the sweetest of tiny rosebuds..a lovely textured fabric...

i hope you go and discover her blog...
caroline sews beautifully.



this amazing rose is totally handmade by caroline...
doesn't it just 'make' the cushion.



the dreamy spotted pink on the back,

tomorrow i'll show you what other covers she sent me...
it's just that they deserve a post of their own!

now...after my fun morning...
i think i'm just ready to take my time...
choose some more fabric from my little box
and cut out a few more covers for theodore.

i can see the light at the end of the tunnel now..
with this project,
so on with a quiet, contemplative afternoon!

'til tomorrow...

  5. Oh, you had me cheering for you!!
    No seriously, it sounds like an important morning you had to 'run' off to anyway.
    Lovely fabric on caroline's cushion...such a sweet colour :-)
    I bet you'll feel a sense of real achievement once your project is done...like you said, the light at the end of the tunnel is not far off now!!
