    plumduff55 - great work on the piping - I tend to avoid that technique.

    Thanks Florenceem, I have my own hand written notes I refer to when making these. So they're very straightforward except for the join which you can see on my cushions but it's the best I can do. If you ever want to do them, pm me and I can send you my notes that include everything from stitch size to shaping the corners.

    After my morning filling a skip, I had a nap instead of an afternoon of sewing 🤣
    Last week I made one card, nearly finished another, and painted two drawers on the chest of drawers I was supposed to have repainted before moving! It's getting there, although do need husband to find me the tool for chiselling off old glue so that I can repair the fallen off leg. I might count that in my total when it's done as I've been renovating them for quite a long time...!

    I've mocked up a pattern for a dog poo bag holder that I saw online- one for holding all the oddments of bags rather than the nice rolls you can buy! I hope it works. Should use up some scraps either way. I'm still signed up for a Christmas fair, so I will knock a few up for that.
