Cushioning the landing

So we've landed in Queensland (well - drove 7 hours)!
I've eventually unpacked the sewing machines -

and with the rest of my fabric still all packed away,
 just taken out some vintage pieces I've been collecting,
 to make some cushions for the new place!
(this one was to go with the graded green rug)

This was a single piece,

just big enough for a cushion cover.

My absolute fave of the lot is this one, it was so hard to cut into.

But I do have a bit left to make some for the shop - or more for us!
(Will post some more photos of the new place when things are a bit more sorted).

Yes well, I'm just ignoring this pile of empty boxes at the mo.
Will hopefully sort them out this weekend!xx

I have been thinking of you, hoping the move went well.
Wow, those cushions are divine!!!
Ignore the boxes, they can wait. We still have a pile of boxes in a few rooms. They are great to stick kids artwork on when you cant use sticky tape on the walls :)
Enjoy your new home. Cat x
