TACK Challenge ...

What started out as a bit of fun, rapidly developed into one giant pain in the butt for me. It was like a mill stone around my neck. I had better things to do than sew something with bad quality, tasteless fabric.

Hang on, maybe I could really challenge myself and try and make something that was vaguely attractive? Hmmm, no, that was never going to work.

Perhaps I could make something hilariously funny, like my fellow TACK challengees,
Nicole and Alison . No, I had no time for humour.

So this morning I sat down and made this. No fan fare. Just here it is. And I've kept my end of the bargain. A giant weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

Now, back to sewing something that I may actually enjoy.

Yes, the cute little budgies got me! I used the rest of the Australian Animal fabric to back the cushion.

Are you saying it has more ASS than CLASS? Surely not?

Yes, never again. Whose idea was it anyway? Why can't we just do pretty swaps with lovely wrapping like everyone else does?

It was YOU TWO'S idea!!! I was invited :P

Yes definitely more ASS than CLASS.

Next swap, THE MOST sweetest sickeningly gorgeous packaging....

LOL - YES Al, it will soak up any afterbirth nicely. Aaah fun.

challenge for sure. i congratulate you for finishing that project but i too would have a hard time doing it . there are so many other thing that are waiting to be done that a challenge like that would truly be a mill stone around ones neck. now that the burden has been lifted i am excited to see what comes next.

what are you going to do with it? I hear that cats and dogs at the RSPCA are always in need of some bedding, perhaps you could do the charitable thing and drop it in one day. It might make it more worthwhile.

Did you have the fabric? Or did you purposely have to buy it for the challenge?

Oh No, this lovely Creation definetly belongs in the home of Mrs Kath Day-Night.You should send it to them at the ABC. She's one classy lady who would appreciate a craft of this magnitude! Love your use of Classic Spotlight Samples! I am admiring your sewing skills though! And thanks for the link to Charles Blackman too!
