HAPPY 2014

I know, I know, I've said it several times before and I have to say it again--it has been almost 6 months (how can that be?) since I last posted, and, really, I have no excuse except I simply did not do it.  It was not a priority.  The truth is I used to be really good at posting just about every other day, and then in July of 2010 I threw my back out and ever since then I have never been able to get back in a routine of regularly posting on this blog.  And then I had other traumatic stuff happen and, well, my focus was on getting myself healed and back on a more positive track.  Now, for 2014, my resolution is to recommit myself to this blog and, for those of you who follow my other one as well ( which has also suffered from lack of focus.  I decided that, at least initially, I'll post once a week, on Fridays for A Little of This That and the Other and every other week on Wednesdays for At Long Last Heard.  I know it is just a matter of getting into the habit again.

I also had this crazy idea that every post needs to be long and involved, with lots of pictures.  How silly is that?  If I want to post just one photo or one simple paragraph, then that's what I'll do.  And today's post will be just that:

I did this cushion just before Christmas for a nursery.  The baby, a boy, is due the beginning of January.  The fabric is a flannel, meant for pajamas, not for a cushion cover, so I felt I had to line it with duck cloth to give it the necessary strength.  I even went so far as to line the welting.  Normally, I wouldn't have done that, but it was only about 4 yards and I figured, why not?
