My Creative Space.

For this weeks Creative Space I would like to share a little bit more of my latest obsession......cushions!

This one was inspired by one of Megan's T-shirts which had an apple on it.
And because I like apples I made this little 20cm x 20cm cushion to go with the bigger one.
Together they look like this!
This is the big one I've been working on of a night time.......it took what felt like a month to make as once again the design was totally hand stitched on. The cushion measures 60cm x 60cm so it's quite large, I think it would look great just about anywhere around the house!!
What will I put on the next cushion?

Your cushions look stunning - I especially love the tree with the little bird. I admire you doing all that hand stitching!

well done on finishing that hand stitching, the tree looks great.

i love the apples!! One of my favourite colour combinations - red/pink, black, white/cream.

I think its coz you get the warmth and vibrance from the red but the crisp coolness from the black and white
