I've decided that I am just as bad as my girls when it comes to giving things away. This is the second cushion that I have made for someone else that has been snapped up - by myself this time. I just couldn't part with it.
Yet another recycled jeans project! Look, the pocket still works too.
The zip will probably be a good hiding place too for those girls-in-bed-parents-break-out-the -treats kind of treats that need to be hidden quickly.
And some buttons on the back of the over-stuffed cushion. It's the only size I had. My button hole stitch is so quick and amazing on my new machine. I can actually make a button hole whilst drinking a cup of tea! Imagine how fun that is?
After kindy today, I went on a wee jaunt to Mount Wellington about 15mins away. The home of the fabric shop. You would have been proud of me. I only bought one piece of ribbon even though I was soooo tempted to buy plenty of other lovely things. Very nice fabrics everywhere at the moment. Such a shame. Still when I actually find out what I want to make I can go back and buy, buy, buy.
There is an old quarry out there that is turning into a new sub-division. It is so like the Sim City game!! It's just got bits of finished housing plonked down in one part. Whole streets developed in other areas. Ponds. Diggers and workmen everywhere. The girls thoroughly enjoyed watching it all out of the car window while I dined on Sushi. It was so yum!
This is the completed section...
An overall view...
Look at this wonderful design with rocks...
We watched with great interest at this digger levelling off the top of a man-made hill. Really couldn't work out the reason for this???
Funny how these places just suddenly appear. I really enjoy seeing what's happened each time I visit the area. It's kind of ugly but weird looking. Not somewhere I would like to live. Still I guess one day when the trees have grown and the houses have aged a little it will blend in like any other area.
