Ahhh look how close I am to finishing! I have two edges done. It is now completely in a cushion-shape, open at just one end, which I need to fill in and straighten up. Then I need to sew on some buttons and make some little loops for the buttons to fasten on to – … More Mini update number nineteen
Drumroll, please! I have….a corner! Isn’t it wonderfully corner-like? In fact, what I have is more than a corner. I have a corner and the whole of one side: It is beginning to look remarkably like a cushion cover 😀 I’m really pleased. And it was definitely the right decision to pin it onto the … More Mini update number eighteen
This is starting to get a bit tricky. It’s all very well making flowers, and then turning flowers into clumps of flowers, and joining the clumps together. But this is obviously going to be a cushion. Which means it has to fit precisely. I don’t want it to sag right from the beginning! And that … More Mini update number seventeen
Back at work on my wheelchair cushion 🙂 A lovely big patch of flowers, just beginning to join on to the main piece. And this evening, I shall tackle some ends *is determined*

And it’s really not a complex one! But it matters in terms of where I use colours, and if I join … More Mini update number thirteen
One side of the cushion cover is done*, hurrah! Onwards and upwards. I’ve started making motifs for the other side. I’m not going to join straight on to this half, I’m going to ‘grow’ towards it slowly. There’s still the sides to do, obviously, but still, I’m nearly halfway done 😀 *ignore the ends, that’s … More Mini update number twelve
This particular section has definitely proved the trickiest bit so far: Because I’m trying to keep it ‘organic’, I’m not just working from the centre out to the edges. I’ve worked several different clusters of flowers into one piece, so it ‘grows’ from more than one place. Sadly, that does mean I end up with … More Mini update number eleven
