I have been busy recently sewing Christmas gifts for family and friends. In the last 3 weeks I have been making reading cushions and although I have wrapped up two already, I did manage to take a picture of the third. I did not have a pattern for the cushion and so just made it up as I went along – although the mushroom block was a free download. I was quite pleased with my first attempt, however there are some areas that I had to rush so could be improved upon.
I am now in the middle of stitching a patchwork stocking for one of my nieces – I hope to embroider this before finishing. The pattern is a free download Sunny day Supplies I was planning on joining in with their stocking SAL – but couldn’t quite get started in time! Loving the colours so far.
For the little patchwork squares I used the interfacing method – which made my life much easier and I think the squares look much neater too.
Thanks for popping in, happy stitching.
