For Nancy

Photobucket


I stitched one of Brookes Books cake freebies (which you can find - Here
for Nancy as it was the chocolate cake, it really was a nice one to stitch, and I'm glad she liked it too, Nancy has taken some lovely pictures on her blog of the wee hanging cushion I made her.

The cushion is backed with pink and white gingham, and trimmed with pink beads, and finished off with a copper coloured ribbon for the hanger and two chocolate brown ribbons as decoration. I scented the stuffing with my favourite smell - roses its a rose scent for pot pourri which made the stuffing smell gorgeous, I had to be careful using the scent as its an oil and I didn't want it to ruin the stitching, but it seems to have worked as Nancy said it still smells lovely.

Ok thats me all done and dusted for the weekend, Amy and I didn't make pumpkins yesterday she didn't want to in the end, so no pumpkins to show you, but we did do some cooking which was good and tasty, today Uncle Mark is going to take us both out somewhere, regardless of the weather - yesterdsay was the most awful day we had high winds and heavy rain in fact it didn't stop raining all day, but today looks a little better well at least its not raining at the moment.
