Autumn patchwork cushion.
|(All are sold.)|
Have a great day,
|Thought I'd use this fabulous turquoise floral retro fabric to create a cushion. I combined it with a 50's red rose design and a Sanderson print...One of my favourite colour combinations.|
|It's such a lovely print for summer, I thought it would make a cheerful little hand bag ...|
so that's what I made next!
|Lovely vintage button to fasten...|
and lined inside with a classic Sanderson fabric.
|Another wonderful summery textile is this flowery print by Bevis, called 'Bunbury'...|
|which I used to make a pair of cushions, perfect for a deckchair or garden bench.|
|I made a shoulder bag too - Ideal for trips to the beach...|
|And a peg bag to cheer up wash day!|
(In my shop as from this Thursday.)
|There aren't many activities better for taking your mind off things than a bit of crafting (other than perhaps gardening? - But in this heatwave that takes a lot more effort than normal!)...|
So, cutting, stitching and sticking was the therapy I went for!
|I made another using images cut from one of my vintage Beatrix Potter books. I have quite a few of these and hasten to add they are all damaged in some way, so I salvage the good bits for use in my card making.|
|For a baby girl...|
|And baby boy.|
|This image was sent to me by my friend Maggie...|
I must admit I've been feeling a lot like Mrs.Bunny in the illustration...
I've been letting things get to me and my youngest daughter noticed and arrived home from work with these beautiful roses for me...
|Knowing someone cares really does make all the difference.|
|Have a lovely weekend,|
