Little milestones (we will have been here a month on Thursday) and the luxury of doing nothing on a Sunday.
Well Trev did nothing but teach himself Facebook (I can now have video chats with my family) and lie on the terrace semi-snoozing. I can relax, but I am always thinking of stuff to do next so I got the sewing basket out and started on some hand sewing tasks.
These cushions probably epitomise my mad mix and don’t match approach to my textile projects. The cushions are relatively new; I liked the striped linen but not the hideous motifs on the front panel. So I sewed on these little heraldic style mats which are around 100 years old and are edged in a classic gimp with a fine metallic thread woven through it.Great juxtaposition I think.
I have just opened a big box of vintage scraps of fabric and trimmings so the cushion cover production line will soon be up and running. Each will be entirely unique.
The dyed antique cotton lace was added a while back; the broken toe post for those of you who have actually been paying attention………..
