First of all Happy Anniversary, Julia!

red in chairRight on to the Wednesday business – I’m late again in joining the linky party at Julia’s blog, and to top that there’s really nothing going on on my workdesk so I’m going to show you what’s on my chair! I’ve been cushion making again this one is for Michael, my husband and Valentine awww! I’ve also, at last, got round to opening my Etsy shop where I’m selling the cushions as ready-to-sew kits. I hope you’ll pop over there and follow me or even better order a kit oh what a shameless plug, sorry!Sophia 

Still on the cushion theme, I made loads of them earlier in the year for various family birthdays and when Sophia was at her Nan’s at Easter she was asking why everyone had one but her. Well her birthday isn’t until May, that’s why … but how could I not give it to her now? Soft Auntie Sue, I know!

So, I’m off to look at some workdesks, you coming?

Well done on opening the shop, I'm sure you'll do well as the cushions are spectacular - I love the heart one, those red buttons are to die for.

I'm glad Sophia managed to get hers before her birthday Lol!
