cupcake cushion

phew-eeee it's hot here today!

I'm not good at being hot. It makes me grumpy!

Today I've had all the windows and doors flung open and got the sewing machine out so I could play with the new fabric I showed yesterday.
I've been in and out of the garden, hanging up washing, eating lunch, having a coffee, but only for 15 minutes or so at a time, otherwise I think I'd have melted!

The sun has moved now which means there's a shady spot with my name on it...perfect for reading, which is what I shall be doing when I get off the computer :-)

The photos are all of my cupcake cushion...I made it today, I also made the actual cushion bit too, because not a lot of place sell cupcake shaped cushion insides!

I enjoyed making this....it's the first bit of machine sewing I've enjoyed doing for a long while.

Yup! Totally sympathise with you. The heat's too much. I don't want to moan about the great weather but I wish I was at the coast. At least I could go in the sea there and a breeze too. Aah well. You've been more productive than I have. Love the cushion. And inner ;0) I've spent the day reading emails and lurking on blogs. Popped out every so often til I began to melt than ran to hide in the house. Not even done my own blog yet.

I thought I recognised the fabric you used on your cushion, I bought the same jelly roll 2 weeks ago. It beautiful is'nt it very fresh and summery!

We've been for a picnic today but we had to find a place completely in the shade as my hubbo does not do sun!
