I've set myself a Challenge to inject some 'Spring' into my home and to make the household chores a bit, well, cheerier. The plan is to make new cushions and a pair of curtain tie backs for the living room. A new apron for when I have my Chef hat on. A peg bag to make me smile while hanging out the washing and lastly, and probably most challenging is a wall hanging for the utility room. I've wanted to create a wall hanging for some time now and just don't know where or how to start.
Oh and most importantly I do NOT want to buy anything new just simply use up what supplies I have, including those pieces that I love which I seem to be holding onto? - for what reason? I haven't figured out yet.
Now where to start? I dug out a panel by Wendy Bentley for Timeless Treasures and decided in using this for my cushion. I didn't use a pattern, just kept adding bits of fabric on until I had (roughly) a 16" squareAnd here's my finished cushion. Being a bit of a rebel I love bright clashing colours. I remember from when I was little, my Mum saying "Red and Green should never be seen". ... I'm so chuffed with the end result that I'm happily throwing the rule book out the window.
