Oooh I forgot about my new cushion cover!

I completely forgot about showing you my new cushion cover I made using the remains of the cashmerino silk stuff I made with this blanket. 

Well the cushion cover (from a very well known, high class shop you may know) was absolutely done in. It was a mess. I cannot understand how something could get in that sort of state but there it is. Before pic:



So I made this for it:



Do you like it? I have to admit that I ran out of red on it so had to use the Lipstick from Stylecraft but you can't really tell. I love it. So very pleased with myself. 

Sorry this is short and sweet.

Time and work and kids and house and crafting and all that!
