As I was recently told by a neighbour, who had also just had her second daughter, that these days getting a sibling as a gift is not enough for the older one, but you should also prepare a birthday gift for the occasion. OK, I thought. The perfect idea came to me during a meditation in a Kundalini yoga class taught by my maternity leave replacement teacher. There was a thing for Clara from nearly a year ago that didn't get finished. Her embroidered cushion (blogged here).
I got Clara's drawings and the materials out again.
Embroidered the missing pieces (that really takes quite a long time, even compared to "slow" knitting).
Sewed the cushion covers together (a good thing to get started on the sewing machine again).
My little cat lover chose the fabric a while ago and it had just waited for the right place to meow!
