Occupy my sewing room - FNSI show and tell

I have been taking part in the Occupy Your Sewing Room hosted by Cat Patches

Here are the results of my occupation ;-)

Cushions for Sister-in-law

from this (covers from a lounge suite)

to this!

My very first french seam ;-)

Two down, hopefully I can get two more out of the off-cuts.


Friday night was another FNSI and I was able to prepare for my December swap blocks which were finished today ;-)

First up was Colleen for Block Swap Adventure - here is a tease.

Next up, a tease for Lorraine for QBSA

Ladies, your blocks will be in the mail on Monday.

PS - Lorraine is having a wonderful giveaway HERE

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day. 
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-) 
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. Nice cushions.
    You do realise you'll have to post photos of the 'teases' after they are received to put us out of our misery, lol?

  2. Love the fabric of the cushions!

  3. Great work! I'm so glad you joined us!

  4. Now I have to see more! Nice cushions too.

  5. Wonderful up-cycling! Cushions are not easy and you did french seams, good for you!

  6. Love your cushions and I can't wait to see your blocks!

  7. Oh what a tease (and a fun way you did it!); I can't wait to see the blocks!

  8. Clever woman! I was wondering how do we show off what we made with out ruining the surprise for our family & friends.


  9. LOL @joyandcomfort
    I can't claim credit for the idea of showing the offcuts - I saw it somewhere else in blogland and thought it was a great idea ;-)

  10. Hello Cathy,

    Great cushions. I remember learning French seams in school, I have done them every now and again.
    Happy days.

  11. Your pillows are beautiful. Most people have no idea what a french seam is. Good work.
