Beautiful day today...

I really like these kinds of days, the sun is shining, just a gentle breeze...the washing is done...well not folded yet but dry......have been for a bike ride....



...and I have managed to do some sewing.......Annie had a sewing cushion last Saturday, one I have liked for a long time.....the Port sewing group were going to have workshop, but haven't heard when yet.....so this afternoon I decided to just go ahead and make one...it is known as a Star Fruit cushion. ....I have used 6 inch squares....



these are the fabrics for the top..only had to unpick once when I realised I had made a mistake on one of the seams....

I have decided to try and put pockets on the side...just a little added challenge!!!

side pieces being added to the bottom....



Ta dah!!!! Finished.....the only problem is that I think I have made it upside down because 
I think this is the side you work on.......



If so then the pockets are  the wrong way around!!!! Ah well, I tried and maybe I will just use it upside down!!!! 
Happy sewing.

Your new cushion is lovely Sue - either side up. I am eyeing up that fabric you have to the side ... I think it says Keep Calm & Sew on - Love it.
