just for me...

I had a lovely weekend with the Boy's on Saturday. It was SO cold and Mic was away watching the V8's all day, so we watched movies and played some games and it was really lovely. I did get to create on Sunday as well......and finally, create for myself as well as The Shop. I made some of these ruffled burlap linen hand towels, which are listed in my Etsy Shoppe. I think I will use them as hand towels over tea towels though. They are so thick and soft...too nice to use for dishes!
I finally was able to make my Amy Butler cushion for the Chaise.
The back is made with the reverse side of blue and white ticking. I like the soft, aged appearance it takes on. The little button is the same as the one on the other side and I used some of the cover material for this. The little beaded cushion to the left is one I made while Pregnant with Mason...I had a craving for beading and crewel work!!!
I decided the little cushion looked better on our bed, and I am loving these new European covers I made for my Etsy Shoppe. The blue has a shimmery effect to it. and it looks so fresh against the white.
This little lovely was a 'decide what to do while I am sewing' thing. I love it, and it now sits happily on my office chair.
And finally, this little ruffled cover for The Shoppe that has my new design on it. You can see some of these pieces HERE.
So, I am all inspired again and spent Sunday night printing some new panels for the shop, which I will somehow have to try and sew this week. As always, I would love to know what you think.
