This is just a mini-post since I don't have much to show for myself. The bolero is moving along as is the third log cabin square but neither are ready for photographing. I decided instead to show off what I made on Sunday.
I had mentioned recently my desire to make a cushion for the couch so that the boyfriend and I would stop fighting over the two we already have (also I don't like to make things without a purpose but you know that's the secondary reason). Thanks to my lovely new sewing paraphernalia I was able to do this in an afternoon (and a bit of an evening after The Simpsons).
I haven't bought filler yet so it's not a functioning cushion but it will be one day!
Details: the top is based on the Around the World quilt pattern. I wanted a box-shaped cushion (for want of a better description) to match the others on the couch. I decided to use the blue from the top because I had it already (who needs a better reason?). I went into this having no idea how to make corners but what I lacked in knowledge, I made up in gumption. I decided to just give it a try since it's so nice and easy to rip out sewing (a million times easier than with knitting!). I gave it a go and, miracles of miracles, there was a corner! I just kept on going and suddenly I had a real three-dimensional box. It was thrilling. Now I can't wait to do more sewing.
Stay tuned after the long weekend when I begin making my dress!
