Another redwork cushion

Although i haven't had a response from my swap partner i think enough time has passed for me to reveal the cushion i made.

It is looking a little flat here, as it would without a cushion insert, but this is how i sent it. It is however machine quilted.

I was very happy with how the finished cover looked and learned a few new tricks on my sewing machine along the way.

It's nice to be spoilt occassionally.


I hope you are having a day as lovely as mine.
Poached eggs on toast and presents galore........ a CD, a book and a Wii Fit (very cool).

But it's been so long since i have blogged anything longer then a paragraph and i have so much i need catch up on.

A PIF gift from Marica.
A redwork cushion from Rowena.
And how my Aged Care course is going.

This is the lovely creation that Marica sent me recently, along with the lollies that did not last very long at all. She looks wonderful sitting on my table looking after my sewing tools.
As i said in my last short blog - i need some people willing to play the PIF game. I already have Shiree and Diane playing with me, but i need another 4 folk who want to join in. If you know of anyone who might be interested please point them in my direction.

Here is the terrific and pincushion that Rowena sent me as part of Maree's redwork cushion swap. The cushion has made my lounge room much prettier and looks perfectly at home sitting on our sofa.
I still haven't heard if Rowena has received the cushion i sent her at the end of April so i will have to wait a little longer before i show you what i sent.

The Aged Care course i am enrolled in is quickly nearing completion. Only 2 more weeks in the classroom and we are off to do our work experience. To say i am a little nervous would be a major understatement !! I am terrified !!!
I think if i keep repeating my mantra i will be ok.

This too will pass, this too will pass, this too will pass.

Well it works for birthday parties at the local roller skating rink and is worth a try.

I have got to stop saying "I'll blog more" cause it just doesn't happen. As well meaning as i try to be.

This is just a quick little post to let everyone know i received a gorgeous PIF gift from Marica last week that i will showing off very soon. As well as the fact i would like / need another 4 people to send my own PIF gifts to.
