milk crates and stash scraps

Sweet seats

Well I had this idea the other day, and up at Buderim there is room on the deck for some extra seating in a casual, relaxed setting. So like I said this idea came to me about recycling and patchwork and I came up with a sweet seating option and a great way of using up a few dodgy pillows that have got a bit lumpy and out of shape, the odd milk crate that well we have plants in out the back. Anyway what do you think? this one is my trial one but i think it will be a good way of using up some of those old country fat quarters I have got in the stash, buried in the bottom basket.

 Well this is my log cabin scrappy top for my seat, sorry I forgot to take a close up of the seat finished but here it is ready and waiting with my cappuccino ready and waiting, anyone want to join me? Sorry Mum no melting moments close by.

Oh and this some of the other lovely china I found when I was out & about the other week. I just couldn't resist. maybe I might make the cups into cupcake pin cushions...................

Thanks for dropping by, and have a super week, xx love n hugs

I only get down to Peppermint on Saturday this week, but thank you for the offer. I am having a little sewing bee next Tuesday.
Hope you enjoy the retreat, I think I could do with one too.
