Boy Its Hot!!!

Its another stinker here today. It is supposed to get over 40 degrees - yuk!!! I have been lucky enough to finish work early today so I am enjoying some quiet time in the air conditioning until it is time for the kids to get home. I will be taking them to the pool this afternoon to cool off before heading off to touch footy - think I may be doing that in the wrong order.
I have been doing my very best to get some chrissy stitching done. This is what I have achieved
Not sure if this is going to be a table runner or a cushion but it will be a xmas gift for my Aunt.
These are tissue packet covers - you know the soft travel packs that you can buy. I am planning to pop one of these in with everyones present so I will have to make quite a lot - have made 4 so far. They are really quick to make - takes about 10 minutes and uses very little fabric. A great way to use up all those scraps.

This was supposed to be a gift for someone but I am not entirely happy with the way it has turned out so will keep it for myself.

I also finally finished my sweet mums cushion. I am very happy with the way it has turned out - just love Sally Giblin designs - very quick and easy and I only needed to purchase a small amount of fabric for the back - the rest was leftovers from another cushion that I made so I am sticking to my fabric diet - well so far anyway.
Am off now to work on my Aunts gift and to have a cold drink. Hope everyone out there is surviving this hot weather.

It sounds funny reading about it being hot in November. It is cold here in the U.S. in Georgia. I LOVE that pillow. Where did you get that pattern if you don't mind me asking?
