Fat bottomed girls …

here’s a cushion that a few of us can fit on!
I thought I’d use up some of the Ripple One blanket left-overs and make a cushion. This massive 24″ feather cushion pad has been hanging around since I bought it, with the intention of creating something spectacular for my stall. Now it’s strictly for keeps and I’ve called it the Wave Cushion!
Thought that it would be brilliant to carry round in Dolly-van – a comfy place to park (my bottom) on the ground, or to loll against on a picnic rug, maybe. I’ll have to fight off competition from Belle, who’s always up for a spot of comfort (snapped here after being allowed up onto my bed for a cuddle, and promptly going fast asleep in Dolly last weekend)!
Ripple & Wave must get together, but Ripple is upstairs on the bed and all this medication that I’m taking is making me feel very wibbly wobbly, so I’ve only made it to outside the back door. I’ve just noticed that the snippets from the ends are still there under my patio chair! Must sweep up when I’ve got a bit more energy. Yesterday evening I couldn’t even be bothered to use a sewing machine to sew it all together, so all the seams are handsewn with wool. I did spend a bit of time on the buttonhole though – just love doing them properly and the wool makes it all chunky and knotty!
Before you ask – I didn’t do all the beautiful blanket stitch around the cornflower blue wool – this is a corner from a rather unusual vintage blanket that has 4 blanket-stitched sides. Unfortunately it has a horrible stain in the middle, so I didn’t feel too bad about chopping it up. I should have ironed it, but frankly, life’s too short!
So, give us a wave, you mega cushion …
To celebrate the beginning of June, all the roses in the garden have burst into bloom …
Hope I begin to feel a bit more rosy soon – I hate feeling under-the-weather. Maybe some more crochet will be the cure!
