Sometimes when you have a long list of ideas and projects that you want to finish by a certain date i.e. Christmas, another project comes along and jumps to the top of the list. Well that has happened to me this week. A friend came over last Friday afternoon for a sewing session. We had a great time sharing our projects and chatting. We had both gone to the Duxford Quilt Show and had bought a cushion pattern with the idea that we would sew together. Friday was our 'sew and share' afternoon. We didn't quite get the cushion finished in one session so I decided that I would complete it this past weekend and tick it off my growing Christmas list.

I have enjoyed doing the hand stitching around the blocks and the flower. It has been nice to sit in the evenings doing some stitching whilst listening to the radio.

So although I hadn't planned on making this cushion, I am glad that I had a bit of a detour from the Christmas list. Now I need to get back on track with my Christmas table runner!
The photo below says it all!
Border in the making!
