I finished the cushion cover last night and mad a cushion to go in it, although I ran out of stuffing so it will need some more before I can close the hole in the cushion. Luckily, with it being in a cover, Austy is able to have it in his room tonight and since it's so thin with stuffing, he has decided it makes a snuggly pillow, and went down as soon as we closed his door. A few EBers would know that we had some trouble with him on the first night in his new room, his excuse for all the tears being "but it's not finished". Slowly but surely we are getting there though and here is the evidence:
Some bunting, appliqued curtains and a big new personalised cushion.
Quilting underway (although, VERY slowly but I am determined to get it done). Emma came over today to get me started, generously gave up half of her day off to do it, and also gave me a few pointers. This is my first quilt this size (and the second quilt top I ever pieced - just been sitting dormant for a while), and I have decided to use wool batting so it's quite heavy and tricky to manouvre. I have already had a few "What was I thinking?!" moments but it will be worth all the effort in the end.
BEAUTIFUL new big boy bed, fit for a prince, waiting for a coat of paint tomorrow. I'm so proud of Austy's Dad. He's never built a piece of furniture before but when we couldn't find anything we liked, and those that were close cost over $1000, he decided to attempt it himself and I love it!! He still has to put the slats on and make the trundle drawer but he wants to get the bed part finished so Austy can sleep in it and worry about the trundle drawer afterwards.
