On Friday I went to The Eternal Maker in Chichester for a cushion making workshop. After fighting with my machine, bias binding, piping and zips, I came away with this
Now, I've made cushions before but never with piping, especially piping with handmade bias binding! I do love it and this one is not for sale! However, I have an order for one to go to California and possibly another is going to South Shields to an ex-Londoner.
Saturday was spent mainly in my sons' bedroom sorting out a space for his Lego Star Wars collection. We ended up with a lovely space, a tidied room, 3 bags for the tip, two bags for the charity shop and one bag of things to sell. My husband cooked dinner, a rare treat, he cooks a mean chicken and noodles hot enough to clear my sinuses and headaches!
On Sunday my mother in law came for dinner and we had an amazing leg of lamb, delicious.
Monday was wet as only a Bank Holiday can be so I made these red velvet cup cakes with two tone icing! I've made them before but this was a different recipe and I can highly recommend it
And finally, today is my Mum's birthday and this is her card, I forgot to take pictures of the others I made!
The inspiration for it was stolen from the wonderful Kirsty Wiseman, you really should follow her blog.
Don't forget to leave a comment on my previous post to be in with a chance of winning a cushion.
