Are you sitting comfortably?

If not, then maybe you need a cushion?

We’ve just had week 3 of The Great British Bake Off.  I haven’t watched this week’s episode yet but thanks to the radio that was playing in a shop yesterday, I know who’s gone – what a shame.  There should be rules about not disclosing such things just in case somebody hasn’t yet caught up on ‘catch up’!  If you’re watching too, who’s your favourite to win this year?

The retro kitchen cushions will be making an appearance over the weekend in Alton at the Makers’ Market and then on Sunday at the Taste of Wickham food festival.

It’s threatening to rain tomorrow so I’m probably going to get wet but last evening was warm and still and I couldn’t resist leaning out of my upstairs patio doors and spying my youngest J2 animating his sketches on his new tabletty thing.
I think he could do with a cushion!

Have a lovely weekend.


Linking up with Finish it Up Friday too.

Little Quilts & Cushions …

13/05/2016 § Leave a comment

This week has been a week of cushions …

I always love it when customers return to order from me.  Flora has been added to a very pretty pink cushion cover, to match one with a little campervan that I made last year.  She’ll be taking up residence on a beautiful window seat – lucky ducky!

The boats have gone to another very good home where they’ll meet up with a quilt called Sailing By …


and some little quilts will also be making their first appearance on my stand at the River Cottage Spring Fair over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of this month …

Tweetie Pie
(you can almost hear those little birdies chirruping away)

and Retro Baby

It’s been a busy ol’ week up here in my studio!

Another quilt has also been finished but it’s a commission and I’ll have to keep it a secret until the beginning of June.  A landmark birthday with an heirloom quilt to match!

Hope the sun continues to shine over the weekend.  I will take a trip around the garden in photos very soon – there just aren’t enough hours in the day at the moment!


I’ll be linking up with Finish it up Friday too!

What a week …

of cushion-making!

Here are just a few in a bit more detail …

I actually finished 15 cushions in a week!  That’s a record.  Sunday is the Art & Design market in Winchester but the weather is threatening showers so I’m going to keep everything crossed that doesn’t rain for too long.

Next week I’m going to blog about something other than cushions and quilts.  I’ve been doing a bit of shopping – parcels have been arriving from all over the world!  We’ve been out and about for some lovely jaunts and I’ve been practising with my zoom lens.

Have a lovely Sunday.
