Gosh that is a mouthful of a title but it is exactly what these cushions are.
I thought I would share some of these cushions with you that of course are now at Lilly Cottage and Friends.
I start these cushions off with a vintage doiley and then embroider a verse on them ( if there is enough room and they need it), then I match all my fabric scraps left over from different projects, around the doiley, handstitch or machine stitch them on (depending on how well I am feeling), add a border and we are done.
Some of the doileys just scream out for certain fabrics and it is so much fun to do.
HOme Sweet Home is a popular choice as in yesterdays post and I have some fabulous vintage Ballerina doileys waiting in the wings as well. You might also be able to see Rosey's sweet little birds and dresses and Renata's quilled cards (just gorgeous) tucked in amongst the pillows too. CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO MAKE THEM LARGER.
Sleep really does sometimes get in the way doesn't it?
The Handmade Expo is coming up on the Saturday 18th September and I hope to have some new stock ready by then as it is always a wonderful day.
Today is a sewing, painting, stitching kind of day and tomorrow is Spring!
So it must be Spring Eve..how exciting.
Happy Spring Eve,
Kiss Noises Linda
