Cushion and progress

As the cushion has now landed at Chantell's home I can show what I made. 

Here is the front...


and the back.

The request was for pink, yellow and grey for a child's room.
I put a pocket on the back which I then split in two - one for the cheeky angel who tagged along and the other for keeping special/secret things.

Both Chantell and her daughter are happy with the cushion. Yay.

Thanks to Sue for hosting this fun swap.

For my crafty break - I gathered some supplies.

(calorie free chocolates)

Some pretty scraps - just right for a new project.


Then I pulled out the pinwheel quilt top that I made at Easter.
I spent this afternoon basting this one, I have visions of putting my machine to work quilting tomorrow.


The needles have still been clicking - this piece of the wrap is growing nicely and my sock has progressed to the heel. 


Both yesterday and today I ventured out for a walk to the beach. 
Yesterday was hot and windy, and today I managed to get there and back between showers.
 The sky sure was changing quickly today - I could watch those clouds for hours.

Hope the sun shines on your week - and may the best team win!
