Christmas cushion….

Now I am either really late for 2014 or really early for Christmas 2015, I will leave it up to you to decide!

HOWEVER I like to see this as the new more organised me and that I am smashing my new years resolutions already…

I finally finished my Christmas cushion

Patchwork

This is really special to me for several reasons

firstly because I have only ever done the bog standard square patchwork and this is not just squares.

secondly, I adjusted a pattern to suit what I wanted and I have never attempted to adjust a pattern before. I am in love with the magazine QuiltNow and this cushion is adjusted from their christmas wishes cushion in issue 4. Talking of the magazine if you have not picked it up before run down to the shops now and pick up a copy it is full of inspiration and has loads of different projects at all different skill levels so even a relative newbie like me can find something to try.

and last but not least this is the first time I have ever put a zipper in a cushion!

Told you I was smashing those new years resolutions, one of which is to learn new skills…..

This also takes a project off of my to do pile, I tell you my shoulders have never felt so light… ok ok that last one may be a slight exaggeration because every time I open a drawer lately I keep finding half finished projects.

But for my first finish of 2015 I am pretty chuffed.

What has been your first finish of 2015? and was it an unfinished project from 2014? please tell me I am not the only one with a pile the size of a baby elephant?!
