In celebration of blog friendship and support, I'd like to humbly offer this 11" cushion as a giveaway. (Thanks to those who made that suggestion) Just leave me a comment on this post and please, please make sure you have a way of me contacting you in case you win.
I'll draw a random number on Sunday night Australian time and you'll forgive me if I don't reply to comments on this post so I can get on with sewing the other one.
Edit: I am prepared to post internationally of course.
If you want to make one of your own, this is Kellie's pattern from Don't Look Now. I love it to pieces and there are four cushions in the pack, and I'm making them all. She suggested a great binding would make it look fabulous and I did find a good stripe in the stash. I didn't even have to cut it on the bias, it was printed like that. Kellie even has some free patterns for you to download and make for yourself on her sidebar. I didn't start these knowing how to do it, I just followed the instructions and had a go. I've never done free motion applique before so while it might not be a proffessional version, it was made with joy.
A pretty pink on the back and I think it was a good save.
Other happy news is the fabric that arrived from Terri. She had a fantastic sale that I just couldn't pass up. Fabulous Kaffes to re-stock the stash and the cheapest I've ever bought. For now, I've left them out to stroke as I go past, lol.
