When Gill and I went to the Selvedge Winter fair a few weeks ago one of my very few and modest purchases was this little fabric covered button from Ray-Stitch. My step daughter Kirsty has a little black cat called Ruby and although I didn't have the faintest idea what I would make I knew it would be the inspiration for her Christmas gift.
On Friday afternoon I allowed myself the luxury of a few hours stitching and this was the result.
Truth be told, I'm a bit reluctant to give this away and wondered why I don't ever make cushions for our sofa.
The back is a simple envelope closure... and a chance to use that special button. I don't do zips if I can help it!
Perhaps I should make one for us that says "No Reindeers on the Sofa"
As if the death of our many domestic appliances isn't enough I now cannot access my email account. I feel like running away and hibernating in a cave somewhere until April. But alas, there are still many things to do... including one last post here tomorrow, my 1000th post. See you back her for a special giveaway!
