YUK! Whoever sent the rain clouds to England, I need your address so I can return to Sender!
Our lovely sunny days have gone walkabouts at the moment and as we are fast approaching September I'm wondering if they'll come back again this year, needless to say the days are gloomy and very very wet.
Thankfully I can go back in time on my blog to when the sun was shining and show you what I promised to in my last post and that is what to make with Tilda bunny scraps . . .
A patchwork cushion of course!
I used the good old English Paper Piercing for this project, can't remember the last time I did this method, funny how modern sewing machines have taken away all the old traditional methods but back in June (those were the hot days!) it was a pleasure sitting outside under the parasol, cutting out hexagons and using up scraps of fabric.
The finished cushion is only a small 12" x 12" but it still needed 42 hexagons to achieve the front, the back I just added a soft cream fabric and did the simple envelope finish.
And as the sun kept on shining it only seemed right that I make a second
one . . .
I chose one fat quarter of fabric for this one and cut as many hexagons out of it as I could that would have a motif on them, the rest are made up from fabric scraps again.
I'm really pleased with the outcome and what a great way to sew and soak up the sun at the same time!
It's been a frustrating couple of weeks for me recently and my personal vendetta with Mr. Sunshine is the reason for a lot of it.
Why? Well hopefully by my next post I care share the reason with you but until then . . .
WATCH THIS SPACE!
I hope the sun is shining wherever you are
