Sunny days on a winters day

It was in fact a sunny day today, well for a while it was and it was quite warm too, warm enough to have the door open earlier for a while. Of course it wasn't to last long, by mid to late afternoon the rain moved in and it got cool very quickly. But not so cold this evening that we need to have the heatpumps on. They were on for a little while but they're off now, the log burner is on low downstairs and that's managing to keep a nice even temperature throughout.
Today was a nice day for sTitchWITS, Dawn brought her knitting and I am in cushion making mode. I've been making them for the window seat in the lounge. I bought some cushion inners last week and they were a bit too small so I've bought the next size up and they look much better, the smaller ones looked a bit lost!

I've made four cushions so far this week, two of them today..

The two slightly small (16in) cushions

18 inch cushion made in a contrasting fabric

The front for this cushion has been in my UFO basket for an age, it was a partly finished quilt 'block' I found in an op shop. The quilting had been done but not the stitchery, so I finished that at my Thursday craft last week, today it got borders and a back which I folded over to become the binding.

Filling up nicely...

Jenny Craig Week 3 weigh in and Suesday tomorrow, see ya then♥

PS I've changed my blog settings to allow comments from anyone, I've been inundated with SPAM since but luckily Bloggers Spam filter is very good so they aren't getting to my moderation page. To anyone who wishes to leave a comment, please feel free to do so, I would love to hear from you and I can come and visit your blog. 
I've allowed 'anonymous' comments too but please at least leave your first name then it doesn't seem so impersonal.

And to the Spammers.......get a life would ya, go do something worthwhile with it. 
You poor, poor pathetic little people!
