christmas sewing

having been so encouraged by how well the advent calendar went, i set about making something with my little tree patchwork squares, (having had no idea what i was going to turn them into whilst i was actually making them), 

a pair of Christmas pillows, 

made using some greenish scraps & some cheapo cream ikea cotton

a tiny amount of hand sewing & backed with some green amy butler fabric

all coming together to make me (& my sofa) very happy

now i'm off to finish my glass of warm winter Pimms & stare lovingly at the Christmas tree


  1. ooo Kelly gorgeous cushions! Just the right amount of christmas... enjoy your evening lovely xx (jealous about the tree, I wish we got ours this weekend... next weekend for sure!).

  2. They're gorgeous Kelly, and will be perfect after xmas as well.
    Warm Pimms, that sounds like a nice idea.
    Enjoy x
