Incomplete!

good morning!

yesterday was one of those spacey days
'cos sunday was a fantastic day
and
monday i just had to readjust to normal again.

do you have those days too...
where you just can't settle and don't quite know what to do?

i was feeling so unproductive by the mid afternoon
{after going out and buying snack food i don't need and spending way too much on lunch...
and mr w will read this and frown!} 
that i decided to complete
what was incomplete.

i had already completed the 'scooting & scarves' cushion
and had thought for a while that it needed a companion..
just a plain one to contrast with its frilliness and colour
so i made a large..45cm..square 'scooting' cushion.



showing off the new one by itself...



front

&

back...




i am happy now with the way they look together.


some things
just look better together..
like the mint slices and cuppa
i'm enjoying right now!


i wonder
what you're doing right now...

  3. What am I do doing? Well it's 6 a.m. and I've walked the dog already. Just grabbing a cup of tea and some toast while I browse a few blogs ... but I have to get on the road in 20 minutes or I'll be late for my class **sigh** Hoping to get some sewing time in later!!

  13. Dear Carol, I'm sorry I have lost so many your latest posts. You have made beautiful pillows and I just love your aprons! They are always so lovely and unique!
    Your flower photos are beautiful and that felted decoration fits well to your vase!
