Plumbing was not numbing

A much longer than anticipated visit from the plumber (do you know where your stopcocks are?  If not, you might want to find out before your next plumber’s visit if you want to avoid looking as much of an idiot as I did) led to time for intermittent sewing.

Pat Archibald piece quilted simply with undulating lines with rayon threads, and bound with a pieced binding to continue the silhouette in to the binding.  I like the fact that I didn’t have to be accurate with the piecing due to the existing crenellations on the silhouette.

I also managed to scavenge enough thistle fabric to make a new cover for a very tatty looking cushion.  This felt very thrifty, as  I also re-used the zip from the revolting old one.
