~*Back Doing What I Love Most*~

The last couple of days I have been back doing what I love most of all...... sewing! Sunday is Fathers Day down under & this year it is very important to me to give my Dad ~something from the heart~ Early this year my Mum & Dad had to have their beloved dog *Cindy* put down which was very hard for them both, they had to say farewell to a much loved family member. So I decided to make my Dad a cushion with their gorgeous pooch taking centre stage.



I had taken this photo when I went home early last year & after a fix up using Paint Shop Pro printed it out onto fabric & started sewing. I decided to leave it plain, no ribbons etc, it is after all for a man!



I have also made a cushion for my Aunty for her birthday this is a black & white photo taken when she was quite a lot younger, a photo I have always loved of her.




So after the housework has been done (yuck) I will be back onto PSPro trying to get my head around a programme that most of the time has me baffled but at the same time can be a lot of fun trying to work out um!

Wishing you all a great day - the LAST day of winter here - yes sooooo looking forward to Spring.....
