I'm a day late in posting but I do have a very good excuse - more of that later on. First, I would like to show you my week's work. Yes, it does seem to take me ages to actually finish something, and yes, I so yearn to be like some wonderful bloggers who seem to start and finish many things in an evening! Well this time I'm actually very pleased with how these have turned out..you see I finally learned how to sew narrow lace evenly onto a cushion! It has always been a rather hit and miss affair as I would sandwich it in between and hope for the best. Now I know that you sew it onto one side and then use that stitching as a guide for when you put it all together! How dumb have I been all these years? It was only after very careful studying of another bought cushion that I realised what to do! Yay! They look just as 'good' as bought ones.
Again, they were made from Green Gate tea towels and a napkin. Lucy told me that you would all think I was crazy because, .."you always use the same pattern. How boring!" Umm isn't all the same pattern and it is a totally different colour! Maybe you do think I'm weird but I still love them especially the brown winter colours which tone so well with this..
..oh the bliss. Now not all has been bliss in our household. Alfie has been and still is poorly. He has, to put it nicely, a bad tummy which has had me cleaning 'it' up every 2 hours since Saturday. I took him to the vet yesterday and we left with some antibiotics (and I was nursing a scratch) and joined Anth and his work colleague in the car to drive the lady home when he promptly decided to poop all over himself in his cat carrier. The smell made us turn around and I was rapidly dropped at home with one smelly cat dreading to open the carrier to see what faced me! He has been staved but still isn't better. I'm hoping the medicine will kick in soon.
It's not all doom and gloom. Look at them now! It didn't take long for Posy to stop hissing but I think she is quite shocked by his behaviour as I popped into town for 25 minutes this morning and came back to discover that Alfie had jumped from the ironing board ( not put away!) onto our mantlepiece and smashed the green candlestick I bought in the summer..and it was my favourite. She also witnessed him singeing his fur and whiskers on the hob!
If this is what he's like when he is poorly I feel we have alot in store in the coming months and years! I can't say I wasn't warned!
