Oh Come All Ye Faithful …. Creatives

We’re artists you know dahling! (Dahling should be said the Edina from Ab Fab way).

How on Gods green earth did I ever live without an over locker!!!???

DD1 has a new to her sofa that is a distinctly uninteresting colour but most functional. She requested some scatter cushions, to which I agreed and then promptly did nothing about 🙂

Whilst visiting this weekend past I allowed DD1 the honour of choosing some fabric from my vintage stash …… Uh Ha I am a toptatstic Mum sometimes. My eldest also an Artist Dahling, chose a vintage Laura Ashley and a French barkcloth. The latter is a bit delicate being at least 60 years old but hey oh let’s see how it lasts.

She did also choose an even older poppy fabric but for some reason I just couldn’t make myself take my scissors to it …. Bad Mum now 😉

Anyways, 4 varying sized feather cushions also from stash are now fashionably dressed in vintage ready for relocation to Northamptonshire. With the advent of my wonderful overlocker the task took a whole hour. Pretty darn chuffed.

As for the Oh Come All Ye Faithful title ….. Seemed seasonably appropriate and that’s the long and short of it but as you too are an Artist Dahling I know you will understand the meanderings and frivolities of a creative mind 🙂

    What a wonderful mum you are:) I used to have some of that Laura Ashley fabric years ago although I can’t remember what I used it for. Perfect as cheery cushions.
