Unleash your Creativity Cushion Challenge

Always up for a challenge and how could I resist when Suzie Newton, Interior Design blogger/writer for Terrys Fabric's, asked if I would like to join in.

I chose 2 completely different fabrics the first one Roosters, I love chooks something so homely about them plus love eggs and yes I do like to be woken by the call of the rooster in the mornings, makes me happy to be alive and in the country, so much better than the roar of cars on a motorway.

 Thinking cap on had this rooster embroidery design and with the country style gingham ribbon am happy with how it turned out, zipper enclosure and fully lined in cream cotton. Ideal for those lazy summer breakfasts in the garden.

The second fabric I chose shells on a blue background, again adding machine embroidery, and an anchor to stabilise the ship. This reminds me of quintessential English summers on the beach with cool ice cream, waves lapping against the shore just bliss.

This challenge has been such fun to do thank you Terrys Fabric's and Suzie Newton and I've another pile of fabric which is just waiting for me to unleash my creativity upon.
