Happy Mother's day....


So this cushion that I was working on last week wasn't actually for my shop :-) I had to tell a tiny white lie as it was my Mother's day present for my Mum and she reads my blog so I didn't want to give away the surprise for her. I chose 16 florals that I thought she would like, some have been used before in other projects I've made for her. She has long admired this cushion that now resides in my downstairs window seat so I knew she would like this design.

The centre came out nearly perfect but good enough for me with all those points to match up. I actually meant to sew on a button but completely forgot :-( 

On the back I did a scalloped button enclosure which seemed to go down well with Mum as she likes this side more than the front??!!
Anyway I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's day like I did. We were blessed with a beautiful clear sunny day here and my girls spoiled me by giving me a set of  champagne glasses (I might have dropped a small hint earlier) and some dark chocolate. My day was made perfect with a walk along the beach and an ice-cream.

Beautiful cushion and the back is fantastic! The back really is great with the scalloped shape. Enjoy your champagne glasses and chocolate. I had some pink champagne today. Cheers! Happy Mothers Day! xx
