I said I was going to make it easy for myself when I finished this little piece, and I lived up to my word. No extras added, just made it into a mini cushion. I had a bag of lavender bought on one of my local stash outings, so I have filled it with some of this which gives it the most beautiful smell when you hold it up to your nose. For the backing I've used a small piece of floral fabric with a brown background. I was in two minds with how I should finish the backing. Another idea I had was to have a piece of Vintage Light Mocha linen as used on the front, and stitch in the centre the small flower buds either side with my initials and 2009 in between them. I opted for the easy option (as I often do in life). Hope you like the results.
The only other thing I've done which is similar in finish is the SB 2004 Fob. So I'm fairly happy with how Chocolat's turned out.
We're having another hot day today. Over 40 degrees and it's a dry, windy, oppressive heat. I had to hang some washing on the line before, and couldn't wait to get back inside again! I've got a wall air conditioner which makes things a little more comfortable. Wouldn't have been able to finish up Chocolat today otherwise. :) There's supposed to be a nice cool change later in the day, so I'm hanging out for that!
