well I had a lovely day today! bagged another day off of work and so decided to have a bit of a day out! First of all a trip to Hobbycraft, really only needed a few rolls of thread and thought I might find some inspiration, felt it was a little bit samey, nothing really unusual just tapestry kits teddy bear making kits and lots of art stuff, oh well I then had to run an errand for a friend in Wiltshire, so I decided to ask my Aunt if she fancied a trip in the car, she had been snow bound for about a week, she has a problem with her hip and didn't want to risk a slip on the ice so she was well happy to get out for a few hours!
So after we did the errand we had a quick look round Dunelm Mill in Swindon, the sale was on and they had some good stuff! I bought some buckram and a few other bits I needed, we then nipped into Sainsburys where my aunt did a little shop, she doesn't drive and rely's on her pushbike to get shopping, so I think she appreciated the day out as much as I enjoyed her company!
Above are a few of the purchases and finally I have machine appliqued the Love Cushion, only my second attempt but I can really see i've improved, what do you think about a matching tassle in each corner when I turn it into a cushion??
