I made this one last year:
It looked very jolly on the couch. All going according to plan it will have a mate this Christmas.
I also decided to make my niece and nephew 'book reading' cushions for Christmas. I heard a great interview on the radio with Andy Griffiths, author of the Treehouse books, who was talking about the importance of helping children associate book reading with pleasure. My mother did a great job of that with the three of us, so I'm going to try and do my bit too. I figured a squishy down-filled pillow would be a great present to accompany a book.
Lions for my nephew:
And some Tula Pink for my niece. Mum bought her a new duvet cover for Christmas, pink of course because she's a girl *snort. So I was asked to make her something to match. (I'm not anti-pink by the way, just anti-pink-because-you're-a-girl). I'm a bit further on with this one. It has some less than stellar quilting on it, and the back and edging sorted.
Now I just need work to be less crazy busy so I can get on with being Santa's little helper...
