Call Me

It seems 'blogger' was having a few hiccups the last couple of days, let's hope it's all sorted out and we can get back to business!
And speaking of...I got down to the business of finishing up my cushion for Vic's - Punky and Me swap. I have to tell you, I was completely stuck for ideas for a while there. I was a wee bit worried until I just got over myself and decided to have fun with it. I had fun for sure with the theme of 'communication'!

and graphic prints, bold color play, and stitchery.

Hopefully, the recipient will enjoy it too.

If you want to see some more cushion goodness, check out the links at the end of this post.

I wish you a joyful weekend my friends!

What a fabulous cushion!

Yes, I was quite frustrated with Blogger yesterday. I'd just get settled into a favorite blog and up would pop the doggone error.

Give Pony Girl a hug for me.

I love this pillow, it is so very unique and clever. Someone is going to be really happy with it.

I just now saw your post...I had to go to my list and click Lola Nova and then this post showed up but not before now...I'm still not trusting 'the fix' by Blogger.

I think a few sunny days are on their way.

Janee Lookerse said...

AH! Lola! Its amazing!!!!!!!! It turned out SO great. I love the silliness. Your telephone poles are THE BEST. They seriously blow my mind. The stitching for wires, whoa. Bravo friend!

OH MY GOD I WON THE CUSHION SWAP!!!!!

Every time I've thought about the cushion swap I've wished this cushion could be mine, but somehow I thought someone else had already said they'd received it. Honestly, I wish you could have seen my face when I unwrapped it - you would have no doubt of how loved this cushion is! I still can't believe it's mine.

I won! I won!
