Happy Sewing

Not much interesting sewing going on here lately. Only blah ones, mending and the like, which I won't be boring you with.

The weather in Kuala Lumpur has also been horrid. I won't be writing about that either, because then I'll only get annoyed and say unpleasant things. Suffice to say that I've been busy boiling and consuming pints of barley water, and locking myself indoors with the windows shut. *grr* To my fellow bloggers who are also affected, you know what I mean, and I hope you (and your throats and noses) are all coping well.

And so, since I'm teetering on the brink of Miserable, I thought some happy sewing might be in order.

Something not too complicated and quick enough to finish. And of course it must be something happy. Like a bright and happy cushion cover. My cushion at the office (my day job one) sure could do with a change, it's been sporting its current cover for quite some time now. It's an old patchwork piece, with a sham, one of the first patchwork cushion covers I've sewed.

Cute. But not quite happy enough my current purposes.

So I've fetched my box of small scraps (the smaller the happier), made my choices and trimmed them to size.

And settled on a layout.

Next stop : piecing! Hopefully I'll have a finish to show off tomorrow :-)

Happy sewing everyone!
