The big clean up in my sewing room has produced results already.
I sewed all these hexagons together years ago. They are 1 1/2 inches across and I made them out of a bundle of charm squares I bought even more years ago that were all sewing themed. At the time I was even motivated enough to sew them to a background fat quarter and even tacked the batting and lining fabric in place obviously with the thought that I might hand quilt them. Like that was ever going to happen.
Today I machine quilted just once around the hexagons then made them into a cushion.
I love my sewing chair but even with the padding on my behind sometimes a girl needs a little more comfort – especially if there is some major sewing happening.
To create the cushion filling I cut up an old wall hanging that I made years ago (I’m beginning to feel old at this stage) that none one wanted hanging in their room and tacked the three circles together to make the padding. It works well. I’m sitting on the cushion as I type this post.
There’s nothing like a good ending to the year.
Thank you all for the lovely New Years Eve wishes and thoughts on Mum. She is fine. I heard her come back from her walk at 7 am this morning – no doubt she went early to beat the heat – and then James was up at her place helping her garden for a little while. He said she was fine too – especially as she paid him for his help…vbg.
