We Made Some Cushions and Found Some Good Fabric.

Hello StuffedNonsense followers?
Hope you are all ticking along and enjoying the first snatches of Spring.
I was supposed to get these made yesterday but had a terrible day involving absolutly no self confidence and a rather large grey cloud about my head for the whole im sure you are aware these conditions are no conductive to a productive
I woke up this morning feeling marginally better and manage to get these out of the sewing machine....
We've been stashing lots of vintage fabrics away and found ourselves being a bit to precious with them soo we took the plunge and coupled with some vintage doilies I made these (hopefully) lovely cushions.
This one is made from the same fabric as the curtains in my work room.
I love this fabric, sweet peas are my favorite flowers so i was very chuffed to find this fabric!
Im unsure of this one, the fabric is amazing but i'm not sure if it is too much. What do you think?
I know they are effectively 'only cushions' but do you like them?? (im rather taken with the off white shade of the doilies)
It would seem that the vintage fabrics gods smiled upon us on Sunday and i left the boot fair with this stash, which meant i didn't mind using up some of our other fabric on the cushions...afterall i have these beauties to replace them!
And lastly i wondered if you would like to see a corner of my work table that is making me smile a little bit...The daffodils smell lovely and every time i look at the little gnome playing the accordion he makes me chuckle.

Hopefully i'll be back soon with a more cheerful disposition but for now i'm still trying to see through the gloom...sewing is helping though.


  1. The cushions are really lovely - especially your 'curtain' cushion, my fav I think. We have dreadful rain - again! not good for raising spirits, the sunshine always helps to make you feel abit chirpier. Hopefully your grey cloud will lift soon. Sue x

  2. It's a February thing! The longest shortest month. Love the cushions though, they brightened my day especially the sweetpea fabric. How do you get such good fabrics?

  3. The cushions are lovely, I am sure march will bring back a bit of your sparkle.
