WIP Wednesday [moustache]

It feels like I haven't done any sewing in ages, but it's actually only been since Sunday. On Monday I basted five quilts (yes - five. There is a lot of quilting in my future). But I didn't sew. Yesterday I made some mosaics for the swaps I've accidentally signed up for! But I didn't sew. Tonight I came home with a cough and a headache and dead tired. But after we'd put Her Majesty to bed and had tea, I made myself sit down at the sewing machine. And boy do I feel better. This is what I made.

I pulled out the red scrap bag, drew a moustache, and started piecing (in much the same way as the turquoise cushion I shared yesterday). It's possible I'm starting to find this kind of piecing comfortable...

I didn't touch my stash, my fat quarters or any yardage (except the grey which was bought for this purpose) - all scraps. 

I have to say that the moustache shape made the circle seem easy. I struggled a bit with the ends, even though I had consciously made them rounded. 

This will be a cushion in the very near future!

Linking up with WIP Wednesday.

Ooh I love it and I have to say Kerry's comment! What next I'm wondering! This close to Christmas I'm thinking it should be a fullest of white whiskers!
