Lately I have been enjoying making cushions (or pillows to my American readers). I have also been enjoying playing with a new toy. My Slice Fabrique cutter cuts the cutest little applique shapes, though what I got it for was the fonts. I have many ideas for projects for children (cushions and wall hangings) and like the idea of putting the child's name on it. The Slice cutter cuts the letters in a variety of sizes and is a welcome toy to my craft stable. 
To cut the shapes fusible web is applied to the back of the fabric and once it is cut the shapes is fused to the background and stitched down by machine. I hope the gorgeous children these are intended for enjoy them. I had fun making them and have quite a few more ideas in mind for other young friends.
I also have used the Slice cutter to make some little gifts for my Mum and sister. 
Take care and try and do a little of what you love each day.

Those cushions are lovely, and the names on them makes them so personal and special. I also love your motto at the end, and that's my resolution for 2014: doing a little of what I love each day (or more if I can get away with it ;-) )

Thanks Sandra

Like many others, to me quilting is like therapy - a little me time to relax etc. Even a few minutes a day is great and less calories than wine or chocolate. lol

Hi Jo - I just adore these (I think the monkey is my favourite - but it's a hard choice!). I can't wait to see what else you make with it. Might have to put in a custom order for someone's birthday later this year!
