God Save The Queen Cushions.

Good evening girls,

I've had one of those "making" afternoons and was quite happily sewing away then the phone rang and it was my nephew asking me if I wanted my sister's old draper's cabinet so quick as a flash I jumped in the car and drove round to their house with my tape measure.

I'm getting it delivered on Friday and I can't wait to show you it.

Anyway back to the "making", do you remember the cloth bag I bought in Oxfam a few weeks ago? It had the national anthem printed on both sides



so I unpicked the seams and made two cushions out of it,


adding a strip of  "soldier" ribbon to the corner


and bobble trim down the sides



I'm realy pleased with them and all for £1.99 as I had everything else in my stash.






As soon as I saw this old OXO tin in a junk shop I thought I'd make a "scene" in it but I'd just got everything together when my nephew phoned so I'll have to finish it next weekend as I'm going on a first aid refresher course this week




and I'll tell you all about the beach hut I bought for a few grains of sand!!!

Amazing cushions! Am keen to hear about the beach hut. We were told about one for sale near us (have been renting on foe the past few years), but the asking price is £*****! Now if it were a few grains of sand I might be a bit keener....XX

Hi, I am in love with your blog, and if you don't mind I would like to use your pillow idea. I play and sing with a small group and I think my lady friends in the band would love to be gifted a music sheet pillow ( I'll use one of our songs). WOW, what an awesome site. I am your newest follower, please accept my warm and humble invitation to visit and hopefully to follow me, too. Connie :)
