Birds & Butterflies!

good afternoon!

after a lovely morning tea at gunabul homestead
comprised of a tall berry smoothie,
scones with jam and cream
and cheesecake and caramel squares..just little pieces...

i came home to a mown lawn...
smelling heavenly
{don't you just love the look and smell of newly mown grass!}


two packages in the letter box,
one from the fat quarter shop..mmmm!
a package from maree..from 'on my verandah'
there were 6 cushion covers inside...
all for the kids at nanango primary school...

i'm just going to treat you to two today..haha!

here they are on the black couch..aren't they pretty...
they look like spring and Easter all in one!

little birds 'n' patches
and candy colours!

a baby blue and brown back with unusual mauve buttons...

the second cushion

beautiful butterfly fabric..feels and looks like seersucker...
and daisies.

more butterflies and daisies in a field of green on the back
and butter yellow buttons.

these are fabulous maree
and will brighten up the classroom no end!

maree makes delightful quilts and has a shop
full of fabric and quilting do dahs...
she'd love you to visit and say hi,
i'm sure.

mr m was off to brizbin...haha..this morning,

  4. Such perfect fabrics for this week! Love the color combos!

  5. Just popping from A Gardeners Cottage. The birds and butterflies and pastels of your pillows are so perfect for spring!

  6. Dear Carol

    Birds and Butterflies... two things I love! Great cushions!!!

    May you and your loved ones be blessed this Easter weekend! May Christ’s message of eternal life fill you with love.

    ♥... In His Love, Kerrie

  7. Those colours are so bright and cheerful, and look stunning together!
    I also love the smell of freshly cut grass! Enjoy your Easter, god bless! X

  8. You are a marvel. Freshly cut grass not for me. In spring time it gives me terrible hayfever. Have a lovely Easter Charmaine

  9. The cushions are lovely. Have a great Easter!

  10. Hi Carol, gorgeous cushions again, I dont know how you fit so much into your day!! I have loved the fat quarter shop for a very long time, but found their shipping was quite expensive... I have bought some fabrics from etsy and their shipping is a lot cheaper. Thanks too for the advice about the made it button!! Will get around to adding that once i have put in the pages along the top under my header; been meaning to do that for months!
    Hope you and your family have a really wonderful weekend!
    Hugs from Laura xx

  11. I love the smell of freshly mowed lawn too. I love the coloured square fabric cushions that Maree made. Thanks for sharing them.

  12. Hi friend,

    Sounds like you had a wonderful day!!! morning tea, fresh mown lawn, two packages in the post (which by the way Maree did an amazing job!!!) and a traveling family...what more could a gal ask for? Have wonderful week end!


  13. Scones with jam and cream and cheesecake and caramel squares sound heavenly! The cushions are so cute... definitely springy and Eastery. Hope you had a lovely Easter, Carol
