This has been a busy week for me. I was asked to help make some cushions for a printing shop in Lewes. My friend Chrissy works there and the lady who normally does their sewing has gone on holiday for a little while. That has kept me busy! The designs all varied as the shop takes orders and you can go in and ask for what ever you like. Eleanor wants one with a fold cat on it so i will have to ask about that. I would have a mouse. The best ones i did were some which will be sold in the shop which and say 'no place like home' and are a nice style. If you buy one you will know who made it!

Marian says you can make one in an afternoon- but maybe that is only a small and simple one. i want to make a big spectacular one. I think it will be a long-term project but i think that will be the nicest way to do it. I am so excited to make the design and buy the materials.
Since my collars i have also been thinking a lot about crochet. it really is a satisfying hobby. I have a dream of a crochet dress (not hippy style - something tightly stitched and structured in shape) but although i have done a sample and worked out my stitches, my lack of experience makes me a little nervous to start a garment without a pattern. There was a lady at Stitch and Beach last night who was doing a lovely little bit of crochet. perhaps she will be able to advise me.
Until then i will be on google images looking at these beauties (and more!)
I like this outfit Twiggy has
