SNEAK PEEK

Well.. I don't have much on for today.

All that's planned is to finish the squab cover.  If I get that done by lunchtime, maybe I will take the kids out for lunch.

They have been awesome... just keeping themselves occupied.  Teenagers... mine are just LOVELY.  Nice for a change I must say.

Now... a sneak peek at the squab cover:


ABOVE:  It's got blue in it!  But... a dusty red to tie in with the chair cushions we bought the other day.  No green though.  I might make a green cushion for the lounger?

Right, I shall bugger off and get the squab finished.

ONWARD...

Well the quilting on the front of the squab is taking longer than I thought it would.  So... it's still not done.

The kids just got up... it's 12.17 am!  What a life.

Right... back to it.

It's DONE:


ABOVE:  I chose this fabric as it matches the reddish squabs we got for the BBQ table and chairs.  I think it's gorgeous.

2.00 pm:  LUNCHTIME!

Well after making the squab, we had a very quiet afternoon.  A thunderstorm too, which was neat.  I LOVE storms.
Not huge, damaging storms of course, but nice little ones.  *smiles*

We had chinese takeaways for dinner.  It was YUK.  We still have not found a nice chinese takeaway here.  I think we have exhausted the options too I think.  Bummer.

Hmmm... it's going to be a quiet evening too.  Watching the telly.  I could be sewing, but well... I did quite a bit today already.
Tomorrow I have another sewing job I must get done.

  1. It's really great to hear how much you enjoy the company of your teenagers - it's an age that gets a bad image sometimes, but you've obviously got things right with your two. Must be all that experience with the first six! The squab cover looks intriguing.

    1. A Squab is a flat foam cushion, one that you put on chairs, loungers, in boats and so on. Go back to my post on Monday and you will see the new squabs we bought for the outdoor furniture.

  7. I'd worked out what it was - we'd just call it a cushion I think. Wow that looks amazing! I wasn't expecting that, that's a really clever use of fabric. Love it.
