in production!

Hello there here I am making cushions for my new etsy shop! I am feeling very motivated, as those of you who read my last post will know and I'm hoping it wasn't just a one night wonder!! only time will tell.....

I have claimed the living room table to spread out on and am in a flurry of finishing off cushions that I have been making over the last few months.

I thought I would show you some shots of the action. Here is my very favourite wool basket, with a new cover in progress, all essential items which can move around with me.

I am making the covers for these new cushions from a soft corded cotton and have learn't how to put in a zip! It takes some time, but I'm hoping I will get quicker at this!

then a well earned coffee break is needed, the conditions are good here for the workers!

the work force......, and a bit of relaxation......

then I hand sew the crochet to the covers,

I just love the bright colours on the neutral background. These colours feel slightly Cath Kidston to me.....
I use a range of different kinds of wool for these, mainly 100% wool, with the occasional vibrant wool blend. So the overall look is quite eclectic.

lots to finish off......,
It's been difficult to price. A lot of work goes into these and I love them. 
I've had to find a price that feels like I am operating at a place of integrity to me, whilst also having one eye on what's out there and how others are pricing their work.....

and on that note, this little cushion packed with colourful retro goodness is now on sale in my shop. Please have a look over. You'll see some new links at the top of the page. Have a look around......(oh and don't spend too long on pinterest or you might get lost!). I will be back in a few days to let you know about a lady who has really inspired me lately. Have a great week!
