Today has been rather a productive one in between housework and the usual routine here at home, plus five bored Pugs who refuse to go out because of the rain!!
I have been cushion making.
I recently bought this beautiful little tin with two pieces of 30's ribbon inside and four lovely 30's Chinoiserie appliqués.
I rather fancied using some of my precious eiderdown fabric and some round cushion inserts that I have had stored for ages partly because I couldn't think of anything to do with them. Very fiddly to do, rather like covering an extremely large button, and then the appliqué is hand stitched to the centre to finish. This is the larger of the two cushions.
The smaller of the two, again very fiddly to get it to sit just right but I am very pleased with the results. They will be coming with me to the V&H Textile & Fashion fair on the 4th of June.
Hope you have all had a great week, now we've got the Bank Holiday to look forward to, let's hope the weather picks up.
