Bird Walk Cushion

Hi,

I enjoyed making this cushion but had forgotten about it until it arrived back in the post. Homespun always take photographs in lovely settings. The photos were taken at a place called The Whalers Cottage, Hyams Beach NSW. A lovely place to sit and sew!

I did a smaller version on a linen background.

There are lots of lovely projects in this issue of Australian Homespun. I love this pattern Japanese Ice Cream by Chris Jurd.  A lovely scrappy quilt.

Until next time,

Echino Linen Cushion

Hi,

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas. Been sewing in between cooking and eating Christmas cakes. A bright blue sky here today so I expect a lot of us will be heading to the beach for a long walk!

Love this linen fabric, it’s lovely to sew with. Although it’s a great weight for cushions I still put some iron-on batting on the top and quilted it a little. Mainly because I like the look.

I cut open a feather pillow for this cushion and made an insert…probably best to do it outside in the garden. A real messy job but well worth it.SANY0816

Baby Quilt

Hi,
Some things just take forever to get finished and this was one of them. It felt really good when the last stitch was done. Such a small quilt as well. It was from a charm pack and the pattern was from a tutorial. www.pieceandquilt.com

All Sorts

Hi,
Finally managed to finish those gloves for a present……can’t believe a month has passed and sat scratching my head wondering where it went! Hope the winter goes as fast.

Woke up one morning thinking i could do with a table top ironing board and while i was out with a friend that day i found a new one in a second hand shop for 5 dollars. Just needed padding a bit. It’s been really handy because although you can’t see it i have a quilt on the floor and not much room to move. I’m expanding at a great rate…as long as it’s not my middle i can live with it!

Lastly i managed to get the companion cushion done to go with the very large one. This one is 14″ by 10″ with a gusset. Half a circle….or maybe tea cozy shape…ish. Enjoyed making it though as it has a bit of all sorts going on.

Big Cushion

Hi,
Finally finished the cushion i was making. It’s REALLY big. I made it without thinking what the finished size would be which ended up about 24″ by 15″. Usually i would make a cushion insert from calico and fill it with feathers but i found in Bed Bath & Beyond a pillow insert with a gusset. It fitted exactly so i was chuffed with that find.

There’s a little brass door knocker as promised to Grehta on the middle house!
Next up will be a companion cushion  in different colours. Smaller…definitely smaller and different but with houses on a grey background…
