Make Mine a Skinny!

Skinny sashing that is!

I couldn’t delay my niece’s cushion any longer, so I just had a go with the pink scraps I already have, rather than buying new (thanks everyone for your brill suggestions – I was druleing over all the beautiful collections and links you gave me!). 

I’ve been wanting to try Elizabeth Hartman’s Mod Mosaic pattern for ages, and this gave me the opportunity.

Some of these pinks are recyled items, curtains etc., the gingham I’ve had for approx. 100 years! and the rest are mostly leftovers from other projects.  And despite there being quite a few different shades of pink here, I think they kinda work together, and meet the criteria of ‘pale pink’!

I was going to put a button holed envelope back on the back (my button holes need the practise, or rather I need to practise my button holes lol!) and buy some delicious girly pink buttons.  Jury is still out on that one, mainly because time is running out & I have a new complication in my week (see below)!

I’ve also decided to stay ‘skinny’ with the sashing on my Stained quilt (now more appropriately named ‘Stained Blue’ – thanks Nicky!  Hadley’s suggestion is unprintable!) and will make the outer border larger instead.

Well, today was the first day of the Easter school holidays, and guess what happened?

My footie mad daughter had day 1 of her much loved annual footie camp, but ended up in the Minor Injuries Unit with a very badly sprained ankle.  No footie (or anything else for that matter!) for 2 weeks!  To make matters worse, she had been invited to County level football trials tomorrow night!  Bummer! 

So our Easter break looks a little different now, with the daughter who can’t sit still having to sit still for 2 weeks!

I wonder will I have any hair left by the time they go back to school!!
