Welcome to Charm About You! I'm Lucy, mum to 3 little uns, who looks forward to those stolen moments (mostly after bedtime) when I can get my craft on. I love to quilt, with some cross stitch and embroidery thrown in for good measure. Check out the tabs above to see pages of the stuff I've made!

I was so happy when Beth asked me to host this week's link up and have fun getting acquainted with fellow crafty bloggers. If you're new here please stay and look around, this week is super busy on my blog and there's lots of awesome things going on so you might want to check back over the next couple of days (especially if you like giveaways, hint hint!!).

This week I've been working on presents for my son's friends. It always seems that we have no birthday parties and then a spate of them all at once. My lovely friend Erin has made some gorgeous kids cushions, like these ones, so I took inspiration from them.

I wanted had to get them done quickly so I chose the easy quilt as you go method and used strips from my stash. I appliqued the boys initials using zig zags and think it gives a nice personal touch.

I made envelope backs - I always refer to this post when making cushions, it has a great table to work out the size of fabric cuts you need and has simple tutorials for putting a cushion together.

Now I'd love to see what you've been up to!
