I heart Rainy Days

Especially when spontaneous Rainy Day Projects come out really well...

Excited by his very own new sofa (which is actually quite old, but has been sitting in the attic), my son and I spent the morning making this little cushion using up strips of Liberty's Tana Lawn airplanes cotton, leftover from his quilt, patched with some scraps of muslin, and I embroidered a silly little plane over the empty strip.  

And the evening I spent making this adorable skirt, using up the last of a favourite floral cotton (also seen on this dress) and from a pattern I have been meaning to try out for a while.  I shortened it dramatically, mainly due to a shortage of fabric, but I love how it turned out, and I will most definitely be making many more.

Overall, a very satisfying day.
