When I make and create I reckon I spend as much time deciding on fabrics as I do on sketching out the actual design and the stitching! Now, I need your opinion about a certain friendly dragon …
I’m having a bit of a dilemma about the main cushion fabric! There’s the broad, beautiful cotton with taupe and pink stripes, then either broad or narrow pink Susie Watson stripes to choose from.
So – what do you think? Which would you choose?
Decisions, decisions eh?
I’d love you to leave me a comment to let me know what you think and I’ll show you the finished cushion along with some other pretty bits & bobs that I’ve been busy creating and hope to finish in the next couple of days.
The weather’s a bit miserable here today, drizzly and dank and dark so terribly early! Hope the sun comes out sometime this week.
Whatever the weather – enjoy yourselves.

I’ve so loved designing this fire-breathing Welsh dragon. I needed to look no further than my keyring, mousemat and letter rack for inspiration. In fact, I have a fair few reminders of my homeland dotted around the house! I wanted to capture the regal stance but add a touch of polka-dot fun with the highlights and give him a friendly face. What do you think?
Having stitched a pink one, for a special little girl, I’m also going to make one for my uncle who has recently moved back to the town where he was born and raised, in south Wales. This could be the start of a new line, maybe!
I’m having fun – and hope that you are too!
