Bright 'n' Stripey!

afternoon all!

i've just been out to lunch
taking this yellow one with me
as a gift to my friend maree
to celebrate her birthday!

she is made out of my last bit of yellow lecien fabric
so i filled in the middle with spots to stretch it further...

maree said she is going to keep it in her car
so her kids don't abscond with!

yellow polka dots and pre-loved buttons...
the colour of daffodils...mmm!

at the cafe
kim who works for habitat for humanity,
came up to me.

she said..the ladies who received the handmade cushions
that teje and debbie made
were absolutely blown away with the thought,
that someone
would make a cushion for them!

well done both of're gems!

well i'm still counting down with the primary school cushions..
another one for the prep kids...number 24!

bright 'n' stripey is what i'm calling this one...
it's made with vanessa's fabric..from 'flower photography'...

from the side...

the back view...

by the way,
the mass of flowers next to the cushion
is actually a hat..made by miss b...
i am caretaker of said hat..while she is in canada...haha!

{i did actually wear it out to a lunch once too!}

i'm having a lot of fun in my neck of the woods..
i hope you are too!

  9. Lots of work going on in my neck of the woods. Trying to get this "old" house ready for our move. I begin work at the homeless shelter on Monday so I am in a hurry to get things somewhat organized. I love all the cushions. You do such great work and are such a blessing to others with your talent. That is what it is all about.

  11. these are just so pretty - the colours are amazing! The yellow one with roses on reminds me of my work coffee cup - they would match up well! You will have to let us know how you make them (if you haven't done so already - I am new to your blog).
