Sewing again

I have started to feel a little more crafty recently (hoooraaahhhh) this morning I have made a patchwork cushion cover using This tutorial as also seen on Lace Hearts and I love it I will admit to buying some red fabrics to boost up my limited supply of reds to make this, but I am sure they will come in handy for other things too.



It looks very pretty on my sofa. I also stitched some fabric samples onto a plain canvas shopping bag, it has been sitting (pinned) in a drawer for months and I found it this morning while sorting out the fabric for the cushion cover, so thats another UFO finished.



I am so happy to be making stuff again, finishing off the greenhouse and digging our new veg patch may have had something to do with my need to be creative too.

I keep forgetting to update on how I am doing with the grocery challenge, well January we came in under budget by about £38, but this month we may be slightly over our £310 budget as we have already spent £261 and have a week to go, but we will see.

Wow that patchwork looks fab:)
My first attempt was pretty crap tbh!! I think I was too stingy with the fabric and seam allowances!!!
Glad you have your creative mojo back xxxx

I'm so glad you're sewing again - fab for you. Your cushion looks so much nicer than mine - much more planned with the colours. I must try that.
Thanks for your lovely texts last night. They really helped. xxx
