Grown ups only!

When hubby and I first moved in together we were still at uni and poor. Like we went to the op shop and got free furniture poor. Shorty after we got pregnant and went from uni poor to uni with kid poor. And then we had more and more and more kids! So for a long time we didn't have time or money to play 'house' and have extras stuff around like cushions....
Now we do!



They match our couch so well!

And yes, they are for grown ups only. Mine is the brown one and hubby's in the green and orange one lol!

Thanks for all the lovely comments and support! I love getting comments and feed back on what goes on in this little space of mine. And a big "Welcome" to the new readers our there :)

Better go, a parcel just arrived from Corrie!!!!! Woohoo! Quilting here I come!!! xox

ohhhhh! that's kind of nice you have been together so long!!!! Don't worry, we bought the nice stuff before kids..so it lasted beautifully until they all came along and spilt milk, yoghurt, dribble etc all over it!!!! Now the couch has been trashed...and the cushions!!! thanks for the inspiration to make my own!!!

happy quilting
Corrie:)

Very impressive cushions. Now I am intrigued about how many children you have! Yep, we still have that given away furniture thing going on in our house. Nothing matches. Occaisionally it bugs me, mostly I am okay with it!

Love it!! I met my husband when i was a teen at Uni, then he joined the Army, we got married & pop pop pop pop out came 4 children, we're still poor but very happy & dare i suggest 'educated'!! If i didn't happen that way (i.e. 2 science degrees & 4 children in my 20s) not sure what on earth i'd be doing, not sewing for a living!! I've pretty much always made our soft furnishings, as i was sewing while at Uni & yes, pregnant at Uni too just as i wrapped up the 6th year. Not pretty, morning sickness when most people are hung over??!! Love Posie

Aww that's really sweet Bianca. The cushions you made are lovely. It's nice to have something just for the grown ups and rewarding knowing you made them too.xo

Good luck keeping those cushions to yourselves! I love to hear about other peoples lives and yours sounds like a pretty interesting one. Yay, for big families!It's just so fun for kids to grow up in one big mob. Ours fight sometimes but have a lot of fun too. Hope you and your honey get to snuggle up on the couch & have lots of 'you' time x
