Ying Ming!

good morning...
it's a lovely bright sunny day here in southeastern queensland..yay!

happy happy birthday

to my sister


hip hip hooray!

my sister jill is a fabulous fabric designer
and artist
and i am very proud of her
she is zany and fun
and thoughtful
and magnificent!

today i am celebrating you!!

i made this cushion today...

it's called 'ying ming'...

i must confess though i have no idea what that means..hehe!

maybe there is a similar design on a chinese ming vase??

a bit of geometrical button embellishment

the back.

it seems as though the navy square stands out a bit much
but it doesn't really in real life.

i love this fabric
i'm going to do another one in pinks...

it's another public holiday here in australia
this time it's labour day.

enjoy the day,
seize the moment!

  1. I love the fabrics you used on this one! And a big Happy Birthday to your sister!! :)

  2. Great Fabric and Happy Birthday to your sister, what a great day it is outside today!

  3. Very nice. US down south have missed out on that holiday. Nevermind - and it would have stopped my un-in with the law too!! (lol) Caz

  4. Love the fabric and the geo buttons!

  5. We're missing out on a Labour Day holiday in Germany - they're a prosaic lot and if a holiday falls at the weekend, well it's just tough luck! Having a sister who designs fabric must come in handy!! Hope she has a great birthday. Did you make the cushion for her?

  6. What a gorgeous design! I love those colours too! X

  7. Happy Birthday to your sister! I love the pillow you made, especially the back with the squares. Have a nice day.

  8. Congratulations to your sister! Your new pillow is beautiful! I love the blue flower fabric!
