I took the pattern from this pin cushion and did a small piece in cross-stitch and silks rather than the larger tapestry type of thing in the book. It came out pretty well (I haven't photographed it yet) but I decided I wanted to try something a bit bigger...

So I started this yesterday. It's a big sewing project for me (given that I hadn't ever done anything like it until last month) but I'm determined that I will have made a pretty cushion as soon as possible! I have decided that the back will be polka dotty, (there's a pattern in the book for that too), and I think it will be pink or blue with white dots. I'm planning to blog about my progress regularly, so I will take a photograph tomorrow, it's still early days though!

And just because they're beautiful; my daffodils from Whirlwind Amy (and her lovely mum), they're so cheerful!
So that's what my space looks like today - it's fantastic to have somewhere so lovely to go, I look forward to work every day!
For more creative spaces pop on over to Kootoyoo!

I will be back tomorrow with photographs of the finished article (which I am quite proud of, despite it's off-centre joins and general wonky-ness), but for now I am going to settle on the sofa with a cup of tea and "Calvin and Hobbes", which never fails to bring me cheer!

As well as crocheting, I have been drinking tea, watching "Frasier" and making a donation to the Red Cross Tsunami Appeal.

I love all the bright colours! So exciting! I have listed them for sale in my facebook shop, my etsy shop and my folksy shop, but they are also for sale in my stall, so it would be ever so nice to have a visit!
