A Basketful of Flowers...

hi, how are you this afternoon?

nearly a week ago now
i completely overhauled our lounge room
and then decided to make these cushions.

i haven't decided for sure
whether i'll keep these or sell them,
but i do like them...

this basket lives next to the tv
in an area that is kinda shadowy most of the time...
so i thought some dashing florals would make this basket shine.

these sophisticated ladies
in their best kimonos
are lounging on my chest right now...

they may just be holidaying
or perhaps they'll stay a while.

where are you hanging out this weekend?

wherever you end up
i hope you'll have a great one!

i'm off to bring kara inside...
she barks at the kids next door,
well, not them particularly
but the wheels on their little trikes
send her crazy.

{she doesn't like the wheels on the wheelie bin either!}

see you next week...

  1. Hi Carol,
    Those pillows are amazing, I love them too! If you decide to sell them, they will amaze anyone who is going to buy them!
    Hope your weekend is gorgeous!!!
    Best wishes,
    Lovestitch, xo

  2. Oh they are lovely! I'm planning a spot of child-free shopping tomorrow, afternoon tea with some ladies & a bit of a birthday 'do' for our big boy. Have a wonderful weekend whatever you decide to do..x

  3. Love that fabric Carol. Stunning. Pam x

  4. Oh these are so beautifully exotic Carol. The colours are amazing, they all fit together so well. Love the little basket too, it works perfectly in that shot. I'd have trouble letting go of those if I were you too. Hope you have a lovely weekend too Carol :o) xo

  5. Oh, I love your choice of fabric! Really nice pillows.

  6. They look a keeper in that spot . Have a lovely weekend.

  7. Gorgeous kimono ladies! I have a dog that barks at wheels too ... hard to explain to the parent of the infant in the buggy or on the bike that he's not barking at their child!
    Have a great weekend Carol :D

  8. Gorgeous bright and exciting fabrics on your new cushions! You are so good at finding new and interesting fabric designs. Have a happy weekend, Carol.
