Here’s my beautiful bag on holiday. My husband loves sailing (I tried it for four years but eventualy decided I didn’t like it! But thats another story.) and took the boat down to the solent. I went by train to meet him at Portsmouth. And then its a short trip on the Gosport ferry and then a very short walk to the marina. I love it in Gosport/Portsmouth, there’s so much to see with all the ships that come and go and the smaller boats coming in out of the marinas and just generally sailing around. Plus there’s a fabulous pub called the “Still & West”, has the most amazing view of the entrance to the harbour and one can sit for hours with a drink or two watching all the coming and goings. I used my bag constantly whilst here and it held up very well. I thought I’d share some pics. Oh yes and we actually had the most gorgeous weather too.
There will be lots of pics now!

Bag with cushions on the boat. Please excuse the mess in the background!
Rest assured people, I do end up making things other than cushion covers. But like I said I’m a slow learner and like to be confident with what I’m doing before I move on. I’ve now made 6 or 7 cushion covers, I’ve lost count. Its nearly the end of June and I’m starting to feel the need to branch out a bit. Don’t worry though I shan’t venture too far out of my comfort zone. I’ve started thinking about bags and how I could go about making them. But of course thats quite a big scary step for me! So I’ll start with something small.
A pretty little pouch. Oh and look, it matches some cushions!
Another little pouch. For a friend.
So I think I’ve furnished myself with enough cushions for now, and start making them for friends. Whether they like it or not!
