I have been very busy making stock this past week. I didn't want to get sidetracked blogging, or indeed touching the computer, as it is like a drug, and yes, 'man, like, I am like hooked...man!'
I always have high expectations of my abilities to make copious amounts of stock. Getting ready for the Bris Style market last Saturday I thought I could make ten new cushions, sixteen garlands, five buntings, twenty new cards, ten LOVE and HOME banners and a whole manner of others little bits and bobs that are in my head. However, in the time I allocated, and at 11.00pm on Friday night I realised that I had to be happy with five cushions and eight garlands. Ah, you have to be happy if you achieve small goals, and then you may have to move the posts arounda bit.
I will be loading these onto Etsy when my slow computer allows me.
Great Barrier Reef
But I won't be loading this lovely red one, it is sold, but I thought it was worth a squiz.
This Sydney cushion turned out very well. It is backed with a cotton brown and white striped poplin, and looks very masculine and clean. I noticed a few blokes picking it up at the markets. Perfect for a 'man cave.'
I am in love with this cushion. It is pure cotton and more of a twill tablecloth weave. I bought the tea towel from an Antique Fair. The pom poms are vintage as well. They are nice as they are not perfect spheres, but irregular and full of character. (As if a pom pom can be full of character. Ye gods! )
