The Never-Ending Honey Bun

I have been making such great use out of the Glace Honey Bun my Secret Santa Sheryl gave me for Christmas. I've managed to stretch it to make a generously sized table runner, a cute little bag and now I've used it to finish my heart stitchery off into a big, comfy 20" cushion.

I need to give it a wash - somehow during the making of it, I managed to get orange juice on my stitchery, as you can see more clearly in this photo ...... why do these things always happen to me?

I've full of ideas for new projects at the moment. It has been a while since I have been this enthusiastic about sewing. I think having a break from the stress and hell of work has caused it. Unfortunately, I'm back to work tomorrow, so hopefully my inspiration will not just fly out of me again like air out of a deflated balloon : (

Gorgeous pillow and gorgsoue stitchery!!! I'm always a clutz when it comes to things like that too, I some how manage to get some kind of mark on my finished work especially if it's white...

Take Care

Love your stitchery pillow Vanessa! It's gorgeous. I'm a clutz too, though it's usually coffee or milo with me! *lol*

You deserve an award for creating so many projects out of a honey bun! I have quite a bit of one leftover and have been wondering what to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration! Your stitchery heart is just stunning - even with it's orange juice stain (which I couldn't see by the way). Happy Stitching, Ann :-)
