Tapestry Pillows and a few birds
Yesterday I riffled through my cupboard and decided it was time to sew up these little beauties. The 3 tapestries have been hiding for some years, purchased in an op shop and tossed aside for another day. Well finally that day has come. I bought them attached by staples to a piece of cardboard with the barest of margins to spare for sewing. Out comes the overlocker to trim up the very frayed edges and then a selection of four cream prints for a patchworked border. The backing is linen with only a 13cm zip...big enough to get a hand through to stuff the cushion with fibre fill. I then proceeded to blanket stitch around the edge...many hours later a crochet border began. I love the coral pink colour of the cotton. A finish of all three just before the sun hides it head for another day. The light always appears strong and throws tall shadows when the sun begins to hang his hat up for the evening.
Winter has been kind to the weeds, they make a magnificent display on the hillside
