Cushion Roundup!

good afternoon this sunday!

just thought i'd do a cushion roundup
so you know what i've been working on in the last little while!

the giveaway..
leave a comment on my post last friday...the 29th april
and you'll be eligible to win one of these...

they are 35cm square.

i call them my 'garden eclipse' cushions,
'cos it looks like the middle of the garden is in darkness while the moon is in front of the sun!

these are some others i've made in the last few weeks...

two 'deer valley' cushions..i only finished the stripey one today!

'london'..for the wedding
that was made on the morning of the royal wedding!

i love the red trees on a crisp white background,
but the day i took it's photo it was so dull
i had to almost push it out the window to get enough light!! lol

'japanese lady'
this has matching peonies on the back.

there are three more of these..
but i thought i'd better stop there
before the photo loader kicked me out!

i made them from a 'punctuation jane' jelly roll
they are large cushions
and lovely and soft and squishy!

i love this fabric with it's retro school vibe..
from the fifties just like me
and were a lot of fun to make.

i'm having a quiet sunday afternoon...
don't you just love that peaceful sunday atmosphere?
{unless you have to work of course.}

if you have any bananas
think of me as you make banana bread..
remember that special from yesterday?
well, put it this way
kara the dog loved the first piece!
{and she'll probably get to eat the rest of}
i'm heading off to a cafe sometime this week
to get a real piece...
