Quilting Temptation and Shoe Creations

I tried my hand at quilting yesterday and made this scrummy Cushion. I used Cath Kidstons Fabric and a felt square to make the heart in the centre. I've never used my machine before to applique something, so I decided to applique the heart to my cushion. I think the results came out surprisingly scrumptious. As this is a first attempt in many things, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I also whipped up the 9 square patchwork cushion with the free fabric from the Sew magazine this month. I am gradually getting a very tasty, comfy cushion sofa.

I've started a little unexpected project. I wanted to try to spice up my shoes. I've got a couple of pairs that are in need of love. Here's how it's going so far. I've got a fabulous idea to also make an oversize red bow and to attach this to the front of each shoe. I need to find the right needle, strong enough to stitch through the shoe. x


  1. Hello Jennifer, Thank you so much for your kind comments on our Blankets. yes, we are doing a pretty good job of brightening an Elderly persons life up!
    I've just been reading some of your posts, and I sold copies 1 to 6 of Mollie Makes a few months ago. Got quite a good price too!
    They are lovely magazines, but I did tend to just flick through and then they were sitting around with free gifts also! So I decided to part company with them!
    I can see you love colour and your ideas are lovely!
    Hugs Suex

  2. Where abouts is your care home Jennifer? x

  3. I'm mightily impressed that you're tackling SHOE CRAFT but even more impressed that you can walk in those heels!

  4. It's abit daunting, walking in them, that is. More so than walking in them. x

  5. Ohhhhhhhhh's sleep deprivation gets the best of me, I mean making them! I work in a care home at Barley Close in Musbury, with young people between 19-50 and yes 50 is young! xx :) I PM'd you. x
