Almost Orla...

hi there!

it always amazes me that
you can go for days and months
with very little change in your life

one day
and there it is
a significant day of change.

today is a significant day in this household.

sharrie got a visa so she can work and get medical attention in australia.

i contacted my first born's in laws to be..and arranged a date to meet them with mr w.

and there are a couple of less significant events
just making themselves known today
and yet have to work themselves out.

change upon change
life works it's changes in and around us.

 it has been time for a little bit of creativity as well..
two cushions.

i have nicknamed these
as my 'almost orla's'
'cos this fabric is a variation on
orla kiely's signature leafy vine type design.

this is the back of the 45cm cushion..
{the larger cushion}


this is the back of the smaller cushion
{40 cm or 16"}

i got an award too, today...
i'll tell you about it tomorrow and
pass it on.

i'm joining up with some creative friends

on this conspicuous thursday!

p.s..these two are in my 'madeit' shop too!
