Couch sitting

Long time no blog, hey peeps! The kiddo and I are bunged up with our very own bugs. She coughed into my face two days ago and now I'm down with her germs. Don't you just love sharing?! Not.

It's nearly noon and here we are slobbing on the couch...still in our jammies.

Haven't the energy to change into something decent, in case some hot, young postman/delivery guy comes ringing at the front door (oh geez, maybe I should at least pull on some jeans), but I seem game enough to take photos, post photos and blog....not to mention knit. He he he!

And here's a finished patchy cushion made from the leftovers of the zigzag couch quilt. I still have no concept of how much to cut when I make the quilts. So I usually end up with a pile of leftovers. Sometimes I make a new unplanned project out of them, but mostly they just languish in the stash.

Lastly, I thought to post a photo of the kiddo test driving the new pinafore I made a few weeks ago. She's worn it three times now since it flew off the sewing machine. She loves it and it looks great with the pale pink turtleneck.

Hokay, time to feed the kiddo methinks. Hope you're all having a good week!

hope you are feeling better soon. I have been couch sitting all week too. I haven't done much though, just watched DVDs and daytime soaps.

I hope you get well soon Jade!

Love the cushion. Ginger blossom fabrics? Love them! And the quilt.
And the cutest girl!

Happy weekend!

I hope you're not too sick and feel better soon! I love the new pinafore - it looks great and kiddo is getting so big!

Awwww, the Bub is getting SO big! She's adorable -- and looking like her Mum. Love the pillow -- and have we seen that other quilt too? Hope you two are feeling better!

So that's what you do with scraps? Gorgeous! Thanks for the fabric bundle Jade. I tried e-mailing you but it failed. I'm giving away the extra stash in a giveaway. Hpoe you get better soon. It's so hard not to pass germs around the home.
