Hi my name is Louise (Lou) and I am a craftaholic. I am in my mid twenties and live in wonderful Scotland. My addictions are jewelry making and cross stitching, I do knit and love to try other things, but these are the two that have stuck. I have been stitching ever since i can remember, but only started stitching properly when i was pregnant with my first daughter. I manage to get my fix in between looking after my two angels and hubby.

Finally the cushion is done.

I thought I should take some time from organising the house ready to move and finish off my MILs cushion. So here it is



The pictures don't do any justice to the colours of this but you get the idea...
I am such a novice with a sewing machine, but since I wasn't following a pattern and had no clue as to what I was doing I think it turned out pretty well.

Nice job. I would be the same way with trying to finish a pillow with a machine. I'm sure she will love it. Good luck with the move.

For someone who does not sew as such I think it is beautiful. Lucky Mother-in-law!
Thanks for your comment on the macramee bracelet. If you want to do the Josephine knot it helps to draw it to size and mark the under - over crossings. Then place the wire on top and go! When done hammer all the curves for stability and work hardening. I hope you see this message.
