ALYoF for February, and other stuff!

As the end of February approaches, I am happy to report that I completed my goal for the month #49


A Lovely Year of Finishes A Lovely Year of Finishes
This is another EPP cushion using Lush Uptown and the Spring Carnival pattern.
It is similar to my January finish, except I used the deer fabric instead of the birds!
The quilting is also the same, using Aurifil #2600.
here they are together, just so you know I did do two cushions! LOL!
I really enjoyed doing these, and I must say that watching the Olympics got me through the second one!

I even had time to knit some toe up two at a time socks while watching too!
A very plain pair with no pattern to get me distracted from TV...
I also made myself an ipad holder, which is great when using it for tutorials while in my sewing room!
I used fabric given to me by a friend of a friend :-) I am told it is Liberty!
It came in the form of a skirt and a hankie!
Do you see that lovely bundle of fabric! It is AMH True Colors, and I won it from Heather at The Sewing Loft!!!
How lucky was that, considering I am on a sort of fabric fast! I did buy some backing fabric, but I needed it, truly I did!
So, it's time to link up my finish! Yay for 2 months in a row! I think I have already surpassed last years' efforts....
