Last week I went to my craft wind-up and every year we have a challenge - this year we had to use the phrase Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Well, as usual I didn't get mine done until the last week - every year I swear I will get it done sooner but I don't know where the time goes. For my challenge I took the phrase as a wedding theme and made this cream satin cushion. The photo is of my parents on their wedding day 60 years ago. Sadly my father died many years ago but Mum lives in a nearby town. This is the only photo she has of their wedding as it was a time when money was very short (my kids cannot believe she has only one photo) so I decided to make this for her for Christmas. I scanned the photo and put it onto fabric then made up the cushion - I must say I am very happy with it and I am sure she will love it on Christmas Day.
I'm hoping to finish my Christmas shopping off this week and then it is only the food I need to sort out - I have lots of recipes I am wanting to try so must get organised tomorrow.
