Modern Retro...

good afternoon!

i'm joining up at

with a modern retro cushion i've made today...

in my creative space.

olive, lime, burnt orange, crimson, white and pale grey...

exploding like fireworks on the pale aqua background!

white bobbles...

a black grossgrain tag with embroidered daisies...
as i learned recently
'daisy' means 'eye of the day'!

white buttons on red...
the back.

i love the geometry of this cushion
with it's explosive mix of colour
and crisp symmetrical form...

ordered and chaotic.

i'm looking forward to row upon row of handmade creative goodness
now as i go and wend my way through
everybody's creative spaces.

i've got 'madmen series 4' waiting for my undivided attention later,
fellow bloggers to enjoy now
and  i soaked in a few rays while having a cuppa with a friend earlier
on this truly terrific thursday!

i hope you're doing something truly terrific today too...
