So it seems its been 3 weeks since I last posted. I'm still here, but life is a bit busy at the moment.
I carved out some time for myself and finished my clamshell cushion. I loved making it! I used most of a charm pack of Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille for Moda and a couple of scrap It's all hand stitched and hand quilted and it was the perfect relaxing summery project to get me in the mood for some nice weather :)
I've also discovered a rather brilliant way to walk Murphy when he's fancying a long walk but I'm short on time. My Bike and the canal!
We get to see all sorts of beautiful wildlife as we go too. Tonight I saw the sweetest little cygnet with its Mum and Dad, and a little duckling family.
It turns out Murphy is a bit of a boy-racer and likes to be in front. We managed 5 miles in 30 minutes! With Murphy setting the pace :)
Have a good weekend!
Stitching and getting fit - excellent. I love the cushion xReplyDelete
Ahahah yes, but when you do post it is always droolworthy stuff. Lovely cushion cover.ReplyDelete
I love that cushion!! Murphy looks so handsome - does he ever try to jump in the canal and catch the swans and ducks?!ReplyDelete
Glad to hear you're hanging in there! Love the cushion. Dog walking with a bike is a great solution. i used to do it with our german shepherd but Kipper, our last dog, was too manic and it didn't work. We picked up a pup on Wednesday and when I get the chance will be blogging about her! JuliexReplyDelete
Really lovely Fiona. xReplyDelete
All your pillows are so beautiful and look wonderful together with Murphy!ReplyDelete
The cushion is really beautiful and the handquilting is lovely!ReplyDelete
Every ESS that has owned me has been a water baby, I could never go near water without having them on leads. Your cushions are lovely, I am a big fan of Bonnie & Camille fabric collections, though not so keen on Happy Go Lucky.ReplyDelete
Love that cushion, and the exercise looks fun xxxReplyDelete
Go girl! That was some bike ride! And your clamshells are so pretty in marmalade. Hope you aren't slowly disappearing under a pile of coursework! JxoReplyDelete
