Lost to the world of Clyde

Hi, so, it's been a while! Life has been crazy and finally feels like it's settled down.

Since my last post I've sold my flat, changed jobs, found a new relationship and I now have a lovely rescued lurcher/greyhound (depending on who you ask) Clyde.

I have started selling some of my lovely collected antiques on my Etsy shop now, and plan to update it with 3 cushions that I'm working on very soon.....

Thanks for your patience!

Sausage dog cushion!

I'm so happy I've finally finished this cushion. I appliqued him onto the nice upcycled table cloth ages ago and could never decide exactly what to do with him! Now he has a lovely piece of vintage floral fabric as a back and is ready for a new home! You can find him now in my shop!

Creating a little cat cusion

I've been asked to create a little cat cushion for my friends mums birthday. I'm excited because I love making cushions with animal designs. She would like oranges, yellows and browns and some floral fabric. I've created two cat cushions, which are on my Esty shop, but they are both darker colours. I'm looking forward to making a more summery bright cat!

I've been looking around for some inspiration and have come across so many lovely designs....

I came across these lovely magnets by Paper Pumpkin when I was thinking about an orange/yellow/brown colour scheme. These have all the right colours but are still lovely and natural looking, not too garish!

I love this vintage fabric bird by leJeune. It's so sweet! I want my cat to look as perfect as this little bird!

These little cats are also lovely and use vintage fabrics! They're by
Jane Foster and have such cute faces!

I'm inspired! Off to get started!
