A Month of Puffs

 When I look back over October so far, I see that it has pretty much been the Month of the Puff for me here at Cherry Heart.  Actually, I started working on these little beauties in back in September but I posted about the cushion and the tutorial in October, so it only seems fair to end the month with them.

I'll come back to that in a moment though.

First of all I just wanted to say a big warm thank you for all your well wishes, sympathy and kind support after my 'Rest and Recuperation' post.  As always, you warm the very cockles of my heart with your goodness and kindness and don't think for one moment that the words you send aren't treasured or appreciated by me, because they are.  Thank you.

I am very glad to report that I am well and truly on the road to recovery.  So much so that I no longer have any excuse to put my feet up and not be getting on with jobs again.  Boo.  The only two challenges that remain unconquered are lifting heavy weights and getting back to the regular running routine.  I can't say I have a burning desire to starting lugging things around anyway and the running will start again next week after the holiday.  So all is as it should be with me.

I'll like to say that means I'm all caught up and organised again but of course, it's half-term this week so any progress made is halted for the time being.  Still, some headway has been made and I think I can see light at the end of the tunnel.  Let's just hope it's not a train eh?

Anyway, all of that waffling is basically a way of leading up to the fact that I have not been entirely idle and I do have something to share with you today.  A little 'this is how I joined my puffs together as I went along' type tutorial.  But that wasn't the actual title I went with in the end, surprisingly enough.

I did think it might be nice though, to show you what I did to join the puffs together when I made my cushion.  Because they are on the smallish side being able to join them together as you make them is going to save you a heck of a lot of seam sewing and end threading in the long run so it's well worth knowing.

  1. I have never tried these but they look totally gorgeous. I have a free hat pattern published this week if anyone is interested. Check it out Jo x

  2. So glad your feeling better. Those puffs are adorable and look very addictive!

  3. If your tutorial for joining these is anything like the Blossoming Bag, which I'm sure it is, then this will be a doddle! I am besotted with these little puffy flowers, I'm just clearing the decks with some other hooky projects then I'm getting stuck in with these - they'll fit in nicely with my Bloomin' CAL!
