Hello wednesday - relax in style

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday  "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

As soon as I saw Bev's NEW Ribbon Bag (here) I was itching to play with the ribbons. But what could I make?

Chatting away to Bev on Friday gave me a spark of an idea.....

She mentioned that she had been trying to relax on her lounger in the garden while watching Sam playing, but could not get comfy.  She said she needed a sun lounger pillow.  Oooh perfect I thought, I can do that.

So Saturday morning I had a play.  I machined several strips of ribbon from Bev's New ribbon Bag onto some lime fabric.  I put a backing on it, turned it through, and gave it a good iron.  I decided it was too big for a lounger pillow, so turned it into an "Oxford" Pillow case by machining a distance away from the edge. I added a few hand sewn buttons from our Jelly Bean Button Box (here)  to the corners and I had a perfect relaxing pillow for Bev.

The hardest part of this Hello wednesday project was trying to take the photos. I am sure it was a force 10 gale, the daisies were almost bent double and the pillow kept blowing away!!! I must have looked a right sight if any one had seen me, but thankfully all the other inhabitants of Blandford had decided it was far to windy to go walking in the daisy field!


Thank you all for all my Birthday comments and emails, I had a totally wonderful day - it was perfect.

I had guessed correctly on Monday, we were heading down to Cornwall to Watergate Bay.

Tony had booked a table at.......

(I now understand why they wanted bright pink ribbon for their Christmas puddings!)

Tony had arranged for a table right at the front of the restaurant....

I had to look at this view all through lunch.......

Wow! Totally awesome Tony x
