My Creative Space


More cushions....the very lovely Cindy sent me some fabulous chair fabric- as a surprise present-as a fellow chair lover I was thrilled to bits, so yesterday afternoon in the hour before Busy had to be picked up I made this cushion. I am never one to mix prints and always admire those brave enough to do so...this is my first attempt really.... I am happy with how it turned out... and yes, I intentionally made the middle seam crooked thanks for noticing. The zipper on the back however is perfection if I do say so myself.

Also thanks so much to everyone who voted for me in the Feeling Stitchy competition and thankyou to all the lovely comments and email wishing me luck and special thanks to everyone who blogged about it or put it on facebook or emailed the link around.
Also Penguin  has sent me a new Softies book to review-  Simple Softies for the whole family. Read the review and enter the giveaway here.
For more creative spaces and lots of straight seams go over to Kirstys and see who else is joining in.

  5. Non-wonk is so over-rated. Might I add that this is coming from an uber anal type who actually means EVERY word. (Nice to be able to do zip perfection, but!)
