It only hurts when I laugh!

My Wonky Star cushion class finished this week.  Here are some of their fabulous creations!

And what you can’t see here are all the wonderfully inserted zips in the bases of the covers!  Well done ladies!

My Friday class produced some gorgeous Beach Huts cushions, using a paper piecing technique, but I will be taking pics of those soon at our Exhibition.

Next week, starts a new project making Travel sewing pouches and journal covers.  Here are some samples I’ve made for class, and some extra journal covers for June Birthday pressies.

The first journal cover shown here is for a young friend who really enjoys baking with her mum.  Now she can keep all her favourite recipes in her own notebook.  I made it from a pair of jeans, including a pocket on the back of the journal cover, and even the buttonholed closure tab was the bit that holds the trouser leg up when they are rolled up into three quarter lengths!

The linen/lace journal cover is a recycled cushion cover that my pet goat (cleverly disguised as a dog!) decided to chew the corner of.  I particularly liked this cushion cover because of the vintage buttons on it, so I’m pleased to be able to put them to good use again!

Following my sports day antics yesterday, I now ache in muscles I didn’t even know I had places! Even my armpits hurt (what’s that all about!!).

My Friday night will now consist of sitting down, drinking port and having to endure the England footie match on TV (my husband’s English – I’ve no choice!!). 

Hope you have a lovely Friday evening!
