I may have been absent in my blogging/commenting for the last few weeks but I have been beavering away in the background to get all my Christmas presents made. Okay so no stone throwing but I completed that task this morning *ducks behind sofa to avoid any projectiles*
This morning I took myself and the kidlet off to our local park to get some pics and have a play on the swings (me not the kidlet!)
I made this Polaroid cushion using some of the Polaroid blocks from the Say Cheese! Polaroid swap organised by the lovely Kristy. Using the different Kona's for the background was inspired by this quilt.
My second cushion used the embroidery I stitched up in Aneela's class back in September. It took me ages to decide how to finish this, but in the end I went with simple borders and quilted it in a style from Aneela's book.
My final Christmas cushion is a scrappy rainbow made for a very good friend of mine, I hope it puts a smile on her face!
So that was the cushions done, I just needed to make a few Kindle cases for family member's, including one for me! I bet you can't guess which one is mine ;-)

The reason why my blogging/reading/commenting has been up the spout is due to big changes workwise for me. I mentioned the big interview a few weeks ago, but after talks at work I decided to stay where I was. I then had to prepare to present an audit that I had been working on for 18 months at a Clinical audit day. This thing was so big, I had three huge projectors across the room - scary!!! I don't remember any of the actual presentation, but I must have done okay because I won 1st prize. £50 in JL vouchers and I do believe they sell fabric there - WOO HOO!
Right I am off to catch up with all my blog reading!
