That's another weekend gone, these short days sure go fast. I trust you have had a good one, I certainly have. Still no heating on here, in fact we are getting some warm days mixed in with the cooler ones. There has been no wind today, very calm and mild. A good opportunity to do some tidying in the garden as it's brown bin garden waste collection tomorrow, and mine is full. All the potatoes are up now, and the beds are dug over and empty. I have got quite a big basket full, should last a while.
I fancied sausage and eggs for my lunch today, so I made it into an omelette. Two of Linda Mac's Italian veggie sausages, cut into pieces and cooked in a little sesame seed oil. On offer, £1 for a packet of 6. Beat up two large eggs in a bowl, add some chopped pickled onions, and pour it over the sausages.
I got on with some sewing this afternoon, wanted to finish another cushion cover. Here is the underside of the patchwork piece. 18 x 18 squares. This time I chose the red floral pj bottoms and a pink stripey shirt, I bought from a charity shop.
I cut a piece of bed sheet fabric slightly wider, and two and a half times longer, than the patchwork. Then cut it into three pieces, and hemmed the two ends. With the right sides up I folded over the two side pieces, trapping the patchwork in the middle.
Turn it the right way and stuff it. I've put a slightly flatter cushion in this one. I like cushions of different thicknesses depending on which chair I am sitting in and how much support I need in my back.
