Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

It's November.  It's Fresh Sewing Day and it's Small Blog Meet.  My favourite make of this month was this Christmas pillow made using the Sizzix small circles die, a paper pieced pattern I drew up and Oakshott Liparis.  A tutorial for this pillow will follow later on this month.

A Christmas Pillow

What about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab.

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.

Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.

  1. Gorgeous cushion Lynne. I love the design - another fresh, different idea from you.
    I just shocked myself by making my October makes mosaic. It has been a difficult but productive month here.

  2. I love your cushion, and know it's not the only thing you've been working on last month ... me, well I wish I could get sorted and up to do some serious sewing. Fingers crossed it happens this weekend.

  11. Love your cushion. Loved it when I first saw it. Wish getting these fabrics in the US wasn't so steep on the postage (we can't get it anywhere but from Oakshot, right?). Looking forward to the tutorial!
