My first Cushions
I am learning to sew. I borrowed a library book that had a few pages on sewing cushions. Lucky for me I must be a member of the last library on earth that does not charge overdue fees. I have such a fear of sewing and making a mistake, that I renewed the book, and then finally copied the pages before returning it 3 days late. I know that a beginner should be buying cheap material, but one of the highlights of moving to The Southern Highlands, is that there are shops in little renovated houses in the back streets of the main village that are dedicated to selling the most exquisite materials and all sorts of other crafty items. When I spied this material, I had to have it. I had to own it. Its handprinted in France, and pink and green is my most favorite colour combination. I love the "exotic" theme...reminds me of the India I do not dare visit again for a while before Baby Messyfish is a little (actually alot) older.
