Cushion Posted - Tick

has been created and was posted off yesterday.
Last post I had a big idea, started sewing away,
then realised how long it was going to take me.
I started looking at books and tutorials again.
It was now Saturday night, and post day was Monday,
I was running out of time.
Too many idea's, and nice pictures to look at!

Then there was a knock at the door.
It was Rachel, plonk in hand, here for "Stitch and Bitch",
which was actually the night before!
Rachel said, "just do what you know", so I did.
Thanks Rachel :)

I even did a concealed zipper - I fret about zip's each time I do one,
then wonder what all the fuss is about.
I used this tutorial for the concealed zip.

Max thought it was OK.
Thanks to Vic at Punky & Me  for organising the swap!

tonight, the cushion is coming together as I had imagined, all has gone to plan,

I hope it all keeps falling into place over the weekend

Enjoy your weekend :)

What We Wear

Yesterday morning, first born, Mr.8 came and sat on my bed.
I had just finished getting dresses, I asked,
How do I look?

His reply,
"You look like a mum who looks after her kids,
and a mum that might have a job"
I then asked the husband, he said,
"you've got the Where's Wally scarf on"

This got me thinking about what we wear and how people see us.
I am a stay at home mum,
all week I had been wearing track pants and hoodies,
it was cosy and warm on a freezing week.
Does he mean sometimes I look like a mum
that does not look after her kids?
I usually wear runners, as I walk up to school each day,
I cook, sew, play, clean (only a little) and garden all day,
so I wear what is comfortable and practical.
I don't feel the need to "get changed" when I am out in public.

This is also the boy that has stuck a few useful notes around the house.
(It's not enough in this house just to have the door shut)

A this handy note on my door on Mothers Day :)

People are who they are, not what they wear,
I have spoken to mums who don't want to get out of the car
at drop off, because of how they are dressed, which is more
about how other people are dressed...crazy!

For the record, I am in tracky pants again today,
have a beanie on as I have not been to the shower yet,
but I have cooked a cake and about to put a second in. 

Hope you have a good weekend whatever you are wearing!
