Told you I was working on something crafty in the background . . . one tiny bit at a time. Seriously, I was sewing maybe a line per night until last night, where I found half an hour spare to finish it off. It's a birthday present for my fiance's grandmother, so I'm glad I finished it before Saturday!
It's an envelope back cushion cover, with a cross stitch front in a popular pin pillow style. So it counts as another cross stitch finishing technique!
I love the dragonfly print fabric, so unique and at 40% off too. I matched it to the colours in a recently finished cross stitch and paired it with a couple of wooden buttons at the back.
The buttonholes gave me some grief, but I got there eventually.
I'm loving the sewing machine at the moment and have the urge to do some crochet. But there's unfinished knitting and stitching calling my name. . . what to do, what to do?!
You can find me at the usual parties :)
That's all for now,
