Two weeks down

One week left of my time away from work....and I finished this couch cushion! It's only been, ahem, three months since I cut up the fabric.


There's a bit of lotta fabric, something from the japanese stash and aqua linen. I threw in the stitchy rows to complement the white in the lotta print.


The back has a plain lapped zip closure, which took me several goes to get right. The secret was in the basting stitches. The lazy arse way of pinning it down just wasn't getting me anywhere except a lot of wonky ugly. But now it looks neat.....it may even look store bought. Maybe.


And just for you, Corrie, here's a photo of the kiddo looking serious...


then cheeky (and fuzzy). They're my new faves photos of her taken on Christmas day.


Now, which fabric pile should I cut up next?

Hope everyone's having a great holiday season!

I think the stitches are fantastic. Well done on the zipper. I hate basting. Happy New Year!
