Showing Cushion Swap

Today is opening day for the cushion swap I was involved in over on the craft forum.

There is something exciting about being involved in a swap as I get great enjoyment at swaping and seeing how other people put together their idea.

My cushion was in a recent "Home Made" magazine. I did swap the positions on the flowers around as I wanted the colours to be more balanced. My swapper was Ann.

Ann made me the 2 smaller green cushions and they suit the bedroom so well. Mind you the blue pillow cases behind them don't fit lol in the colour scheme. I made the cushion inserts myself.

I loved the cushion I made for Ann so much, that I am making one fore myself in different colours. At the moment I am sitting in the evenings embroidering a blanket stitch around the applique.

When its all finished, it'll be used in the lounge room.

Your only limited by your imagination.

What a lovely swap and both of you have done a beautiful job.

Also the work in progress with your new cushion cover is lovely.

Bet the four legged family think that the cushions are just perfect for them as well. ;)
