"Crow Cross Stitch/Patchwork Cushion."

Hello,

I have had one finish for this week. I found the crow cross stitch on the net and have added some fabric to make another cushion for the lounge.


 This cushion matches the Sunflower cushion I made previously.


 This week I have spent a lot of time in the garden. Here are some of the roses I picked yesterday.


On Monday I was thinking how smoothly things were going here. I had no idea that later that day we would need the Emergency Services. We had a Firetruck and 4 Volunteer Firefighters helping us out. Thanks guys.

I am hoping to get lots of sewing done tomorrow. I have made some house blocks and want to turn them into some place mats.

Happy days.
Bev C

Good Afternoon Bev, Oh my, what an earth happened to need the Emergency Services? Are you alright?
You have such a lot of beautiful roses and such gorgeous shades of pink. I love roses, but my plants only have leaves on as it is so unseasonally cold here in England, so everything is delayed.
Love the little crow cushion.
Have a lovely weekend.
Best Wishes
Daphne
