Well, I’ve finally knocked out the three cushion covers that I bought all of the cute red florals for.
My feelings about the results? Meh. As I have said many times, and will continue to say, there are people in the world who can sew straight seams. I’m not one of them. The covers are all straining across the cushions too, making me wonder if I shouldn’t buy smaller fillers. Oh well. I really feel that they could all use MORE ornamentation. Well, I can do that. I have plenty of trimmings left over, that I will… someday she says… sew on by hand.
They will eventually sit on the red and green and white Maison de Noel quilt, which my mother says she is sewing the binding to at this very moment. Then it will all go on the white iron bed in the guest room. The black and white stuff you see here is my current guest room, which will migrate to my study in the new house. I’ll cover my beloved green loveseat with the quilt.
The fabrics with white backgrounds are all from various Mary Rose by Robert Kaufman collections; the red backgrounded one is from the Ellery collection, and the large diamond print I can’t remember. I bought them all from Shabby Fabrics, your one-stop shop for all textiles faded and floral. All of the trimmings came from Jo-Ann’s… lace, ball fringe, eyelet, and I have silk roses, ribbons, and some red daisy-shaped lace waiting in the wings for the next time I feel like doing hand work.
