Race to Finish...

after starting on these early - I had a little break while I gathered some requirements. 
Then just when I was ready to start sewing the thing together, a storm left me without power for an afternoon and evening.


I did a little ditch quilting on the tops and put a Zip in the back,


and now I'm all done with a couple of hours to spare. 


Present for an engagement party tonight.


Sharing the giving with a colleague.


While they are smallish I like the resulting cushions.
 I may just need to add to my own cushion collection (or replace some of the old ones).


I've turned a corner on the sock too which is a good thing as the book is on loan from the library and due back today. I used all my extension opportunities - and am hoping nobody else wants to read it so I can get it out again next week, otherwise I may have an in progress sock for some time. 



Hope your Saturday is a relaxing one.

your cushions look great and i love the colours you used. they all look great photographed together. such a shame about the power going out like that too. you could copy the sock pattern or scan it before sending the book back

Darn power going out just when it was needed. The cushions look great, I'm sure they were well received. Hope you get the sock book back, that sock needs a foot!
