Happy Wednesday! I hope the week is treating you kindly, and all is well in your world.
I have finished my holiday, and am back at work.
I thought I would try and shrug off the back to work woe by showing you some of the cushions I've been making for gifts.
The round one is for my bestie, whose birthday it is on Friday, and the square one was for my sister, whose b-day was Sunday
As you can see I have been experimenting with adding doilies to the cushion covers. I am not the best sewer, so some of these look a little wonky. I was going to add some old buttons as well, but thought that might make the cushions uncomfortable to sit/lie on. What do you think?
In other news, I have a new drastically shorter haircut. My hairdresser promised me that if I went with his suggestion- it would take 10 years off me, and accentuate my cheekbones. As soon as I heard those two phrases, I shamelessly agreed, even though I have been growing my hair for such a long time.
I really like it, he was right, and it's so much easier to style now!
So hurrah for awesome hairdressers.
I have also seen a few movies over the last bit of my holiday. The Muppets Movie amazingly awesome!! I loved it to pieces! On a different note, I also saw the remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which I was very much predisposed to hate, as I loved the Swedish original. However, it totally surprised me and was fantastic!!!
Along with everyone else in the world, I've read the trilogy and loved it, so was very very happy to enjoy the remake.
It has been raining ridiculous amounts here. This was one of the few mornings lately where it did not. The ducks were enjoying respite from the rain.
And finally, I guess you're ready for some Yarning Along, this week I'm reading Red Wolf by Liza Marklund.. I recently discovered this author. She's Swedish, and I love her work. I've been reading quite a few Swedish authors lately, and am discovering I very much would like to travel there.
Anyway, this book is great, and I am looking forward to reading more of her work.
On the making front, I havent really committed to anything new, and have just been faffing about with bits and bobs. Hopefully I'll have a new project soon to show you, but right now, work is sapping all the thinking out of me.:(
P.S. I bought all these buttons!
