Aaah, you’ve all seen this one before, haven’t you! Come on, you remember, about 7 years ago when everything Emily Peacock was having a ‘moment’? Well, that was when Paul got me this kit for Christmas..
Its progress having been *ahem* slightly interrupted by oh, I don’t know, 3 children…, this is easily my most long-term Work in Progress. Totally worth the wait, though, right?
It’s the smaller of the 2 kit options, worked in 2 strands of crewel wool over 10ct canvas. It’s quite big enough, really! After hours searching the internet for suitable bobble trim (I did find a really nice one… for £12.50 a metre, so no thanks…) I got this Simplicity one for £3.99/m off my local awesome market stall.
It’s backed with some quilting cotton from the stash – it’s not a perfect match, as it’s white-based where the cushion front is cream, but it’s of a similar cheerfulness, and I can’t be buying something new for this right now! I underlined the backing with calico to give it a bit more heft.
Pretty, pretty, pretty :)…
So again, apologies for it being all the cushions at the moment, but there you have it. I’ve finished decorating our bedroom (we really need a new light fitting, but I’m SO BROKE that it can wait), so I’m treating myself with a couple of weeks off from DIY – plenty sewing to be done in the near future, fingers crossed! Much of which will obviously be cushions, but also to include some actual clothes. I promise!
Have an awesome week!!
