Matching Cushions.

Finally, almost a year after I finished my big purple and lime green quilt ( the one in the photo in the right side bar ) I have made 2 cushions using the left over fabric to go on our bed. That used 4 different fabrics that feature in the quilt.( different fabric front and back. )

I just did them off the cuff so the green one made second is the better one. I have taken progress photos if anyone needs to know how. They are quilted just on the top, so have 4 layers( feature fabric, batting, calico and backing fabric for the envelope part.) I still have fabric left so may make some more when I get more inners.

Today I went to the doctors ( haven't been since early March 2008 )and had a similar experience to you Meg........ sat by the door to keep away from SICK people and tried to read while I waited for half an hour. The noise and the automatically opening doors are unreal. As always my Dr. took my blood pressure - while I was there ( which was very good for anyone over 50 - I guess I am ! ) What I went for I don't think is serious but have to make sure, so, did I want to go on a waiting list at the hospital and wait forever ( her words ) or pay to see the specialist. I took the later option and his office rang me with an appointment for next Monday, so he can't be busy. ( will up date when I have seen him ).

After that we went off to the Kiwifruit Packhouse where out fruit is out from Controlled Atmosphere storage and being packed today. It will be on a ship almost straight away. ( single layer trays going to Japan, bins and big packs to Europe. ) I'll show photos of that in my next post. Now I'm off outside to do some orchard work.

I like the cushions. Better late than never, I always say. Hope all goes well with your dr visit. We have done more than our share this month because DH hurt his back. Lots of waiting around.

Cushions are a great compliment to your quilt.

I hope the doctor gives you only good news.

I try to always take a book to pass the time. Public waits can be too long. Hope your appointment has a satisfactory outcome.
The cushions are lovely.
