The cushion turned out so well, it's gorgeous!

Davina Ewing

Glad to see you are making great use of the bits & bobs in the box!
They look beautiful in the phot just hanging.

I love the design of the second fabric in brown and green, a random feel to it.

It was great to catch up and belive it or not I have set up a online wholesale catalogue with a password thanks to you.

Hope your week went well at the hotel with the "white cotten Sheets"!!


Yes I would be interested in fabric packs!! Gum nut cushion looks great.


Cushion is lovely !
I think the rack is called ' a clothes airer ' They are wonderful pieces of equipment and are so useful above the log burner. Trumpet must have been tormented with the ribbons being out of reach. Now if they were lower............ But perhaps not.


Hi Agnes,
Got on your blog today and I'm loving it. I love the things you make and I love the way you make your pictures. Sometimes you'll see some frames from your house and I'm loving it. A bit jealous.. Love the surrounding, the style, the colours.. My compliments!
Love from Holland, Lisette.


The 'gum nut' cushion looks fantastic.


Wow!!! Alison I just love the way your beautiful cushion turned out, it looks amazing, you clever,clever girl. Your ribbons and lace look lovely hanging on your airer all clean and smelling lovely, I bet Trumpet wishes that he owned a mini trampoline at this point in time!!! I just love looking in on your little house of creativity, there is always something amazing, and just don't know what to expect next??? Warmest Wishes Amanda


The little cushion is just so neat looking Alison...and yes I bet your could sell that pretty fabric easily - it looks quite unusual.

I've just bought silky white cotton sheets for Summer - they are Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic (can you find her line in NZ?). Plain, except for a ruffle on the top edge of the top flat sheet, and on the pillow cases. They are so smooth and cool feeling for hot, humid North Carolina Summer nights. That's all one needs along with the quiet whirring of the ceiling fan!


I love your gumnut cushion :o) Very pretty! That japanese fabric looks very nice as well. The soft colors look soothing! When you mentioned maypole dancing, I had to laugh... I used to do that when I was younger :o)!!


ooh- yes i would be interested in buying some of those fabrics- they look divine!

i really like the cushion you made from the gum-nut print. and your second attempt too- it's very retro in feel!

Thanks for your post on my weblog. I am going to order you a copy of the Julie Arkell book and send it off to you. One less thing for you to buy! By the way your love affair of the washing machine would soon fade if you had three kids and a husband who constantly spills hot chocolate down his Saville Row shirts! I like reading Gigibird's blog too to get pictures of Rustington. When you are feeling homesick just check out how grey it is in the last photo of our beach! Hopefully will be posting lots of lovely pictures about the weekend on my blog when I get back:)


How much would I just love a laundry room? Very much! I'd love one big enough for a huge airing cupboard, large ironing board, a hangy thing and lots of space for sorting the laundry, as well as the machine itself. Oh, and a radio for listening to radio 4 while I was doing the ironing. I would spend hours in there.
Funnily enough I'm putting together little crafty fabric/ribbon packs to sell on my website at the moment. I'm hoping they'll sell well so I'd say you should give yours a go too. The Japanese fabrics look beautiful.
