bank holidays are great

I've had quite a nice bank holiday Monday today. I didn't go to work for start - always a good start, but I did go shopping for a few bits and pieces for a wedding I'm going to next weekend. The best thing about this shopping is that I managed to use up the vouchers I had been given to buy a new bag, a bracelet, a pair of peep toe shoes and 2 tops, and if all that wasn't good enough already, it was a quick and painless shopping trip too - sometimes when you are looking for something specific you can never find it, but today everything just magically appeared to me in every shop I went into.

This speedy shopping trip also meant that I had the chance to make one of the 4 cushions I had planned to make. This cushion was measured very accurately (cough cough) but I'm pleased to say that the cushion does actually fit inside and I am quite pleased with it.Just another 3 to go - I think I will change the design slightly on each one though - to try and reproduce this when I didn't measure anything properly would mean I'd need to turn a minor miracle.

the cushion looks lovely, I keep expecting to see a monster or bird hiding in the picture somewhere though!

Nice job. The stripey fabric is Laura Ashley isn't it? I have cushions that I made from those and used to have full length curtains in the UK for my living room...

I love shopping trips like that - it's the whole day can't find a thing to fit don't like anything kind of shopping trips I can't stand!!

Your cushion is gorogeous and I love the colours. The apple fabric is my favourite :)
