"Two Pinwheel Cushions and some crochet."


Hello,

I had a pleasant day yesterday doing some sewing for  Friday-Night-Sew-In. I sewed on and of during the day and finished not one but two cushions. Even managed to do some machine embroidery quilting designs on the pink toned one. The blue toned one had stitch-in the ditch in a couple of places. This is the first time I have made the cushions with binding around the edge, a great way to finish the cushions.


The cushion covers are quite large so until I get the inserts I think they will be used as table toppers on the Dining table. I won the pattern from Sharon  from Pine Valley Quilts when the Easter Blog Hop was on. Thanks Sharon for the kit.
I can see this pattern being used in a quilt. A great way to use up the fabric in my stash. During the evening I worked on the crochet doily and added a few rows to it.  It was great to get back into joining in with other people for the Friday-Night-Sew-In. The perfect time of the year to be in the sewing room. Not too hot or too cold.

Now a little bird reminded me...


That I have lots of Maths homework that is due very soon. So I will be taking a break from blogging for a while.  Don't worry I will still be reading what everyone is up to. When I have finished I will be back.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful weekend.

Happy days.
Bev C

Hello Bev. Both of your cushions are very pretty but I favor the pink and lavender one. I think they will great as table toppers. I love your pink crochet project.
Good Luck with your Math. I do not envy you this work. VBG

I miss your post about your Quince. I have never heard of Quince. I think it fantastic that you have such wonderful fruits in your garden. Isn't it lovely to have friends to gather with and work on our projects. Hugs Judy
