Mothers Day is fast approaching here in UK (18th March).
I’ve decided to make my mum a cushion for her recently decorated lounge.
Here is a swatch of her new wallpaper:
|The top right flower looks green but it’s actually gold!|
And here are the fabrics I’ve chosen:
As I’ve been wanting to have a go at the machine sewing method of Cathedral Windows for a while (I learnt the hand sewing method at college) I thought I’d make a CW cushion for mum.
It all came back to me like a disturbing suppressed memory from a trauma long ago! The endless, tedious folding, ironing, burning fingers, more folding, ironing, trying to mitre and align points! Who in the name of Henry thought this would be a satisfying and fulfilling patchwork technique?
If it wasn’t for the stunning finished look of CW I think I would have reverted to plan B long before now.
But I press on (ohhhh sorry about the bad pun!).
|8 squares folded & pressed. 8 more to go!|
If only I had teflon fingers!
