Secrets revealed...

This is the cushion I made for my mum for christmas, it is her family flower garden. There are three hearts planted, which are her three children and nine flowers growing to represent all her grandchildren. I made the cover with an envelope back, I guessed it was wise to have it removable in case it ever needs washing!


And, this one was for my mother-in-law, a sewing cushion as a passion for making things is something we both share.



Just a quick hello to any new visitors from Sew Mama Sew, please come in, make yourselves at home, have a mince pie and some mulled wine!

Plus a big thank you to Beth for mentioning my owls.

Next project is Lucy's birthday on the 6th January and she wants me to make her something, not sure what yet, so watch this space...!

What lovely, thoughtful presents. The colours and design, not to mention the sentiment behind them, work so well.

The cushions are gorgeous - and I particularly love the representations on the first. They are really special gifts.

I've just seen your owls on Sew Mama Sew...and I don't think I ever knew that your name was Amy!

How did the playmat go down?

Hope you have had a lovely Christmas! x

That looks totally adorable! Although, for my home, an impossibility. I can just see the kids trying to pick off the buttons. Hope you have a Happy New Year.
