my bestie and her husband celebrated their two year wedding anniversary over the weekend and of course i decided to make them a theme gift. two years traditionally is cotton so i got a cotton cushion cover and proceeded to make a heart shape of all different shades, shapes and sizes of red buttons - sewing them on with what else? red cotton.
i began to regret my decision pretty quickly - after the first two hours or so in fact - when i realised just how long it was going to take. but considering i decided to make it on thursday night - for saturday. what the hell was i thinking?? seriously...
cause this is what it looked like an 12:36am saturday morning. but... nonetheless, it was totally worth every stitch, cause i was so happy with the final product that i was also tempted to keep it. love love love! and thankfully, she loved it too.
and just cause i can't resist showing off yet another photo of this gorgeous girl... maddie and aunty jen had a lovely afternoon together during our lunch at the mahogany inn.
p.s. most amazing banoffee pie ever... can't wait to go back for some more. or at least try making it their way - which i am totally going to get to work on. yumm
