I have suddenly been motivated to do some sewing in readiness for the Spring fairs coming up soon, must be the sunshine. I had a bad start to the week after doing some gardening on Sunday and getting bitten! My right foot swelled like a balloon and the rest is possibly best left unsaid for those of you with a nervous disposition...it wasn't pleasant to say the least. It is much better now but Andy will delight in telling you I am the worst patient ever.
I am absolutely delighted (if I might say so myself) with these two vintage Tricolour cushions I have just finished making. I purchased a length of vintage podium bunting many moons ago and had stashed it away in readiness for a project. I was suddenly inspired to make two Tricolour cushions, they are fully lined and filled with one of my home made feather pads. I have a massive bale of feathers in the garage so I can make pads of all shapes and sizes. I have finished them with some vintage linen covered buttons down the side.
I have also been busy cutting up the quilts I purchased from Manchester in readiness for the fairs. They are all shapes and sizes and patterns but just perfect for small or large projects. A couple of the quilts I did buy to chop have been spared as they are too good (maybe a little shabby) to cut up for pieces. I'm off to feed the Pugs and then get back to the sewing machine before my rediscovered motivation deserts me. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.
PS A big hello to all my new followers xx
