Vintage chenille

I bought a new doona cover recently and decided to sew some cushions for my bed. I found some vintage chenille squares on ebay and have made these cushions. I even covered my own buttons. Oh dear, now I want to make more covered buttons. Why do I get obsessed by everything I do? If I make one, I need to make 20 - help!!! -

Sewing really keeps my mind off eating though!!!

Very nice pillows....bet they look all "decoratory" on teh bed.
You could make covered buttons as presents if that takes the guilt out of the obsession...I was given some very nice hand embroidered ones at Christmas that I intend to incorporate into a quilt I am making ( when there isn't a cat sitting on it)

You should open an online shop. They are gorgeous. And anything that stops you eating has to be a good thing, doesnt it?
