Whenever I start sewing cushion covers, the questions I am asked by certain members of my family are...
Don't we have enough?
Well.......no, is my short miffed response.
I made a couple up on the weekend.
This is the new rosey fabric I found in a thrift store.
You can read about it here.
Now, for the ugly stuff!
A find in a thrift store.
I love vintage tapestries and it is not often that I find one that I am brave enough to sew into a cushion cover.
This one was taped on a part of an old corflute real estate sign.
As I was removing the brittle tape I noticed the rusty old drawing pin marks of another previous life.
After gently handwashing this piece in pure soap, I cut off all of the linen that I did not need..
Funnily enough, I find the muted tonings of this needlework very appealing.
It think it reminds me of my standard 'home' drawing I produced time after time as a child.
A cottage, trees and a river...sometimes I added the picket fence though!
The needlework is exquisite.
Quite neat on the back with beautiful french knots.
A sunny shot at home this morning.
I tell you, there is no under-cushioning around here!
