Gee even on 2 weeks leave I couldn't find time to maintain this blog! But I have managed to get so many things done and have enjoyed every minute of my time off. It is so much fun playing house, changing things around and spring cleaning.
Even the sewing machine came out. Thought I'd try my hand at making this simple little cushion out of hessian (my favourite thing at the moment). Actually turned out ok for my first try! Next I'm going to attempt a ruffle and some sort of detailing.
Spring is definitely here...twin goats born on the farm at my in-laws.

Baby goats are so cute. That little man holding it is pretty cute too. Thank goodness Spring is here.
Love your cushion

Just love the cushion see I told you that little machine would be a handy gift even though it only sees the light of day occassionally. LOL
Seems you can put your mind to anything you want to try. Well done.

While the cushion is very cute, my vote has to go to the baby goat! Adorable!

Hi Danielle, your blog is just beautiful & I have been a fan for sometime. I have never thought of sewing with hessian, I think it looks great & that's such a sweet photo of your little man.

Hi Danielle

Your blog is a pleasure to visit!

How cute is that photo of your little man and the goat!

Loved your cushions, I painted on hessian at one stage, it's fabulous to work with - so many different textures, even the colours can vary slightly
