Gingerbreadmen Cushion

I have enjoyed making this cushion using Lynette Anderson's Christmas Fun fabric, and I am very pleased with the way it has turned out.

I have written up the pattern, and if you would like a chance to win a pattern (which includes the 2 gingerbreadman buttons) please leave me a comment.

Life has been rather complicated these last few weeks. Hopefully,things will settle back to the old routine again.

Spring is well and truly here. I saw a family of  wild ducks-- mother, father and 9 newly hatched ducklings walking down the street, in the middle of suburbia. The male magpie has been eating lots in the garden, the female is probably sitting on her eggs. The koel has arrived. It is a cuckoo ( one that lays her eggs in another bird's nest) and it migrates from Asia. It usually arrives by the long weekend in October, and this year we heard it's call on Thursday, so it is a little early.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Such a beautiful cushion! It feels almost like Christmas looking at it. I've been elfing away in the craft room this week.

I think the birds are early this year- we've suddenly had Winter arrive in the UK with no Autumn, in the gap between Saturday and Sunday! Just yesterday I saw the v shaped formation of the pink footed geese begin to arrive. We get thousands overwintering here on the coast.
