101 cushions (well almost)

As I told you in Thursday's post, I've been busy.
Now I can show you what I've been up to....All these will be going up on the website in a few days time (Just as soon as I can figure out how to upload them).
I've had the most wonderful time putting them all together. There's nothing I like better than mucking about with fabrics in the workroom with the radio on.

This one has textured polka dot velvet with duck egg blue silk. I love the way it feels when you run your hands over it. The outer frame of fabric is tie silk from Sudbury in Suffolk.

These have copper coloured linen velvet and a densely embroidered flower in the centre.

The velvet stripes on this purple one are so thick it makes you want to just dive in.
This one has the most beautiful silk satin in eau-de-nil in the centre (I love the name of this colour) with silver bullion embroidery. (My friend Heather gave the piece to me and I think it's Victorian.)

See how gorgeous this linen velvet is? It's like a field of gold.

Strawberries and raspberries... (recognise this embroidered fabric Thomsey?)

Yay Thomsey Tom. You gave me that embroidered fabric for my birthday a couple of years ago. From Alannah Hill....with that other pink fluffy velvety one and the coffee coloured lacy braid. Can't wait to see yours. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
