Wednesday Wondering

I'm wondering where the first half of the week went, and whether I *really* have to get up at 7am again tomorrow?

Whoever said "work" is a four letter word is quite right!

So my creative week finished as the school holiday finished , and this is a busy term, with, already in the first three days, plenty of overtime, which means less sewing time 

However, some is essential: I'm teaching an adult class at Chertsey Museum on Friday - Create a Cushion, so I've been to Ikea to get the inserts ( and the purple fleece, and a few other fleeces )

I've made a few cushions for ideas, this one as a sort of lacy rail fence

and this one which are actually HSTs

these are as much to show different construction methods: this one used a man's shirt as the back, with the buttons as the back - thank you Fiona for that idea!

and in case there are some students with no sewing skills, I've prepared some basic pieces that they can sew or glue buttons, ribbon, lace etc onto


  1. You are welcome Benta, I hope you have great fun with your students and their cushions

  2. That's going to be a fun class! You can never have too many cushions :)

  3. Inspiring others - great job!

  4. I hope the shirting pillow gets used with the buttons to the back.....else someone will wake up with button face! He, he, he.

  5. I think you single handedly keep Ikea in business ;o)

    *somewhat smug that I can roll out of bed at 7:50 and be at my desk by 8:30 after full morning shower*
