TGIFF – Cushion for Christmas & Daughters
I think I’ve had a few followers hitch a ride since I gave y’all the skinny on MsMidge’s Cushion for Christmas Blog Hop. My stop was last, last Wednesday, where I sipped on martinis, brushed out my weaves, and made my first cushion. It turned out so well my daughter took it off my hands and asked for another (the cushion, not the martini!) So we spent last Saturday evening together and whipped up this sexy beast in about four hours using my string piecing without a foundation tutorial.
Since the blog hop concludes today, and there are serious prizes to be won for linking up your own projects, I don’t want you to miss a beat! Check out the full roster of fabulousness at the end of this post, quickly whip your hair back and forth, and then whip out your own Cushion for Christmas!
And can you believe what that saucy, little minx said to me about five strings into this cushion? “Well, and for my third cushion I think it should be like this, but orange.” Well, yes, ma’am! Apparently I now make cushions on demand. At least I’ve taught her not to be shy about asking for what she wants, and well, when it comes to me, we all know she’s gonna get it! (I think she might know that, too).
Her favourite fabric in the entire pillow? “The white glittery one.” Oh, I’ve taught you so, so well.
