morning..haha! it's just turned into afternoon!
it was such a fresh sunny morning out there
that before sitting down
i just had to peg the washing out on the line to dry
and do a bit more cleaning and sorting.
at the end of winter here in australia
i find the light changes
and all those corners that looked ok in the dimness of winterlight
look musty and dusty in springlight
and need a thorough going over!
i made up the second fabric that i bought
in the ty pennington range.
i made two luxury size cushions...
for my house.
these won't be going on madeit!
they will eventually be on the black leather couch
but the light was better here for pictures this morning...
birds & butterflies...
this was the best of the pics on the black couch...
notice all the light at the top of the cushion.
i think they'll look good here though.
birds & butterflies
both backs are very similar...
teamed with plain black kona quilting fabric
and black buttons.
i embroidered different flowery tags in shades of coppery orange
to emphasise the lovely tangerine flowers on the fabric.
stacked on the chinese chest...
i thought i might make up the other more geometric fabric
in a pair of smaller cushions to go with these
on the black couch.
i don't know whether they'll happen straight away though!
any more sunshine
and it'll be more spring cleaning
on my list do do first.
i hope all of you
on the eastern u.s.a coast
are ok after hurricane irene....
and all those around the phillipines
and places in between
are ok too after the typhoon.
stay safe and have a good monday!
