AYLI challenge and it's my Favourite thing!

Its time for a new challenge at As You Like It

The sponsor of this challenge is

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite stitching (faux or real) (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Well I always love real sewing on cards but but but......

I started a new job a few months ago because my job in the craft shop
came to an end as the owner had to close due to lack of trade :(

So I now work in a sewing shop Just Sew the materials are amazing and 
after sewing on cards for years It was such a lovely thing to pop in for a zipper tab replacement for my boots and be offered a job with them as the knew the craft shop was going

Anyway I am digressing! 

My creation is my first make from scratch
Here is my first ever cushion I made using my sewing machine, I have never sewn a project from scratch so I am so proud of the result.

Here's a couple of close ups

and Seb our Grandson hopefully will love this for years to come.

I am playing along with Crafty Creations challenge their
theme this time is  Always Anything Goes

Hope you can come and play along with the challenge
Happy Crafting
