Busy Morning!

Well , I started today as I normally do at the weekend with my laptop on my lap, toast and coffee, determined to seek out new and lovely blogs. I must admit that I am addicted, completely. Looking at all of your lovely homes and projects just fills me with inspiration, so what do you think I decided to make this morning.....a Union Jack Cushion.

Now as usual, I rush around like a mad woman, and it isn't perfect in anyway but I ended up quite pleased with the result. Even Mr M liked it ( between you and me I don't know whether he is absolutely convinced about my shabby chic obsessions)
I mean I was sat on a Saturday night Crocheting, not the most edgy thing to be doing...but do you know, I love it! I love making things, so I don't care!

Well I'm trying to resist buying a Stanley Wallet on the CK site, they have been reduced to £15 now, do you think that is expensive? I just don't know? Can I live without it????

One thing I wish she would make is a filofax, I love diaries, So heres a plee to Mrs Kidston ...Pllleeassee make a lovely olicloth filofaxy diary?????

So here are some pictures of the cushion, just made this morning....just don't look tooo closely

Have a happy Sunday

Love Sam and Silkie who is having her 3rd Big sleep for the day xxx

oh and I had to post a picture of 'The Sue' too xx

Hi Sam, I think your cushion looks great! the fabric is really pretty - I really must get my sewing machine out - like you say, there are so many inspirational blogs out there. I seem to start most of my days with laptop on my knee & a cuppa too!! (After I've been out to feed the hens in my dressing gown, coat, socks & pink clogs!!)

What a beautiful photo of Silkie Sue - she looks so peaceful .... Tom's day has consisted of one long sleep on my daughter's bed, with his nose up against the radiator!

Lovely Cushion!! I know what you mean though about the Crocheting! I spend hours at mine and then the next morning wonder why I have a pain in my neck....too much head down and crocheting for all I am worth!! Andrea x

Love the cusion - thats brilliant.

I sometimes feel a bit of an old fogey as well with my crochet and sewing - but then my ebay and blogging obsession reminds me that I am actually cool and hip !!! LOL

Love the cushion, you have been busy, & crafty.
You know the CK filofax you would like (the one they don't do yet). Well I was thinking - could you try buying a filofax, getting some CK oilcloth & covering it with that?
If you lived nearer, I'd love to try that for you. It certainly would be a lot cheaper, and no one else would have one.

Happy Blogging : )

Lovely sewing machine... the cushion looks great. I feel old sometimes with my crocheting.... normally when we watch the waltons & I'm doing my granny square blanket!! My OH used to be in a well known local punk band in the 80's..... it's all very hush hush that we like the waltons ....LOL!!! :)

Fantastic sewing machine. Your cushion looks great too.

You're right there. It's sooo frustrating, still its good to have a friend who will let me use hers to catch up.
Love the cushion, very pretty. Glad to hear the crocheting is still going on.
Take care

Hiya, I LOVE it all! :-)

I think we must have the same taste because it's all the things I like! Did you make the blanket? If so you are very clever! I love the bright colours. You see so many blogs where people are crocheting in muted colours and I think I would do that in pink, green, blue, red, yellow etc.

Thank you so much!

You know Hen's diary covers...I was thinking of having a go at making one tomorrow (got day off). If it works I'll let you know! :-)

LittleGem said...

Cushion looks fab, much better than my attempt. Love all your crochet too xx

Fab cushion!! And what a colourful granny square! I did have a quick go at trying to learn crochet the other day, but then had to give up, as the Moomin was tugging on the yarn!! I think I need to wait till she's asleep before trying again. :)
