Cushions piled up and ready to fill and label
Cushions piled up and ready to fill and label

The green cushions are now made and ready to fill, label and send. I must photograph them properly before they dissapear. I have a bad habit of forgetting to do this and then it’s guesswork when I’m asked to do a repeat in the distant future.

I thought I might be tiring of this green by now but no, I just want more and more. I suppose green is a colour we are well suited to looking at for ages. After all…it’s everywhere! A friend told me recently that she wasn’t alowed to wear green as a child because it was too “catholic”. Can you believe it? and she’s not that old either.

  1. As a child in the 60’s & 70’s green was’t often seen apart from bottle green….one of the things I hate about fashion is sometimes because a colour is deemed out of fashion you can’t get hold of anything in that colour….back in the early 80’s believe it or not but it was impossible to get hold of black…
    Cushions by the way look fab:)

  2. Your creations are wonderful. I don’t know good English but I’d like you leave a comment on my blog! Congratulations! Elena Fiore
