Using up the scraps!

My dear friend Sarah gave me the inspiration for this cushion. I have cut circles of fabric[scraps from my wedding gowns] and gathered them up, pulled the running thread tight and made a Small mushroom shape. I have then flattened them with the iron to make little flowers. The stems are ric-rac sewn on in green thread, all mounted on a lovely linen and tied with a silk bow. I have made two, One for Sarah and one for my Studio. Oh and a few vintage sparkles on the odd flower, to catch the light!
A good day today. Flora has sold six of her paintings to a delightful shop in the village, so we are all excited for her . Our house is a hive of creative activity. Long may it last!!
