Time out

Seems  it has been such a long time since i have  been on my own blog and posted anything.This week has been really busy what with work and other things.I have been able to indulge a litte to relax, with a little crochet.So I have been trying out patterns from Jan Eaton 200 crochet blocks.I really like this book.this was my first crochet book I brought.So will try out some others another time, in the mean time still working on my green squares when I can.I love mostly to create without patterns, but  a nice easy to understand pattern is fine too, and its got to be easy x

So, sew!

Well I told you all last time there would be some sewing coming.Well this week I been busy with a few projects.These days my sewing machine only gets used for mending at thats it.When I was younger I loved creating things even when they did not turn out quite right, but its all about getting the creative juices going not about perfection.I also sketch and i work the same way, just getting stuck in.So in my garden I have my bench what me and hubby brought, it,s been crying out for cushions for so long.We either borrow the inside ones, then they get left out, equals spiders or wet cushions when it rains.So made these....
Just some simple envelope cushions with a shiny side in case it rains and a nice fabric  side to sit on.They were quick to do and if i had known they would take me under a hour i would not have procrastinated for so long.I now have caught the sewing bug, hope you all catch it, ha ha!
