Finally.........

A couple of years ago I did a StitchALong with Marina, Lorraine and Carol....

In the midst of moving things around to put up my new table I discovered it again....


A bit of quilting - in the ditch around the square borders and around the mini hexagon flowers
(those are tiny 1/2" hexagons.....)


It didn't take long to make a pocket back and add it on.....

... LOVE IT .....
such a happy cushion and it was such fun making it with others  
- and we have kept in touch since sewing this together....


I don't know why it took so long to finish off....

Another UFO done.....

Our coldest morning so far this winter... my top lawn.... I love pictures of frost..

even the popular spa  birdbath was frozen over..... hmmm... iceskating anyone? 



Righto.... Gotto Go .... I'm still sewing binding.....

such a cute pillow, always nice to finish UFOs lol leave more room for something new :)

KaHolly said...

I remember that one!! It came out just lovely. Good job finishing another UFO. I haven't been so good. Finally have some nice weather - no time to sew! It seems so funny that you are having frost and we're into summer!

Sue SA said...

Great cushion, nothing better then a quick UFO finish!

The Patch Craft said...

Looks great I have mine on a chair in my bedroom and look at it every day.

Susan said...

I love the sentiment in the words. Don't you go out into the frost and pour hot water into the bird bath for your friends to play??

Your pillow turned out great. To bad you can not bottle some of your cold weather and send it to me. hehe

This is so charming! The stitching is adorable, and those hexies are sweet! I really love them in the purple border, too! So glad you finished it!

Fiona the pillow is darling, well done getting finished, however delayed it is. Such dexterity to do those tiny hexies! Ha, I'm imagining birds wearing ice-skates...

Mistea said...

I love that frost picture - miss having a lawn to watch turn white.
Your cushion looks fantastic finished and now you get to enjoy the work of friends everyday.
Looking forward to seeing all your other finishes once that binding is done.
Enjoy and stay warm.

Lovely finish and a nice keepsake to remember friends.

De said...

Such a sweet cushion. You can keep your frost....it looks pretty but oh so cold.

Jennifer said...

That's a sweet cushion.....and another finish ticked off the list! Poor birdies, I wonder if you can even get skates that small?

Unknown said...

Congrats on a great finish...your cushion is beautiful.
Love the pics of the frost...brrrr it has been cold.
Hugs Tanya

Serenata said...

Oh dear Fiona, this puts me to shame...mine isn't finished. I must make an effort to do so. I really like what you have done with yours. Perhaps that can be the next thing once I have caught up with all the hexie flowers I need to make.

marina said...

looks gorgeous. Well done!
I loved doing that stitch a long, it was such fun

Sunnybec said...

Oh I love it too! How on earth do you do hexies that small!! I just can't I am hopeless if things are fiddly, no patience I guess...it looks so nice as a cushion cover. Hugs xx

Lyn said...

Its nice to find things like this. When I made the Christmas Pinwheel Table Runner using your tutorial, I cut and sew a top for a patriotic one. Just before time to put out my decorations in May, I was going to quilt it. I couldn't find it anywhere and began to doubt I'd ever made it. Last week, I was checking through material and scraps to use in the last row of our SAL and there it was. Its on the sewing table now, I'm going to quilt it the next time I sit down there. I've been doing some hand sewing and other 'stuff' while I've been feeling bad.
I love the verse on this pillow.
