Right back at the start of the month I made a pledge to myself to make and finish a hexie cushion before August was over. I did most of the prep work before I flew out to visit my Parents in the West of Ireland last week. So whilst looking out at this view...

and actively trying to avoid the four kidlets running riot round my Mums house, I stitched and stitched and stitched.
Yesterday morning ( my last day of hols) I had got this far, with one more row of Newspaper hexies to stitch on.

After dropping the kidlet off at Nursery this morning and ignoring the pile of holiday clothes in need of washing, I got back to work on sewing that last row on and finishing the cushion.

My finish means I am just in time to link up with the Festival of Hexagons, which has some rather nice prizes up for grabs courtesy of the Fat Quarter shop.
Susan's beauty of a cushion so go and have a gander ;-)
My Mum loved her table runner and I will blog about that and the non stitchy part of my hols over the weekend. Now I am off to catch up on what I missed in blogland over the last week.
