LOOKING SPOTTY!


Well, what do you think to this little beauty? I know I really shouldn't be telling you how totally thrilled I'm feeling with myself, as well as just a teensy weensy bit proud, but I am! I can't contain my  pleasure. I just love sewing these little beauties. 

This is my first attempt at completing one completely on my own. I used a charm pack for the coloured squares and have to say, it took almost as long deciding on the arrangement as it did on actually making the cushion! 

I used my new overlocker for the first time too, having never used one before. Luckily it was threaded up and ready to go, so after a quick little practice I was ready to go too. It makes such a difference knowing that the project that has been so carefully considered and sewn, also gets to be properly finished off. I'm certainly loving my return to the sewing machine. Long may it continue!
