|The wonderful roses flowering in our garden just now have inspired my latest handmade creations...|
|Using a classic c1980's Sanderson furnishing fabric called 'Chelsea', I made a set of 4 cushions.|
I used the same fabric front and back...
(and just to put cushion making into perspective, I recycled a full pair of cottage curtains to make these...Lots of fabric!)
All 4 reserved - thank you!
This is a cushion I made as a 'thank you' for my friend Maggie, using lots of smaller pieces of fabric!
I used a collection of cheerful red rose prints to make the patchwork front.
|The reverse was made from salvaged pieces from a quilted bedspread.|
|I thought I'd make another one of a similar style for the Textile Fair that I'm attending this Saturday, in Frome.|
Lots of pretty pink roses for the summer season.
Also, just wanted to share this with you - Hubby and I decided to take out a large Bay tree from our garden's border, that had become a bit of a thug. Rather than digging out the multiple trunks, hubby used them as supports for a bird table.
|Using bits of salvaged wooden planking, he created the table top and screwed it into the old branches.|
An old bird house from elsewhere in the garden was also screwed in place, creating a 'Birdy B&B'!!
Hope you too are enjoying happy times creating or gardening,
