A Finished Project - Yay!!

Actually, I have quite a few projects that I have completed but not blogged, but this one is has me feeling pleased that I have finally added some nice touches to the house.

We have been living here for about 1.5 years now, and felt such a sense of relief to have the renovations completed and to be settled in that we kind of just stopped...... We bought a new lounge and I had wanted to live with it for a while to see how it fit in with the rest of our furniture before adding any throw cushions. It was for the same reason that we didn't hang any pictures until recently.....we just had to live here for a while first.

When I decided it was time to accessorise, I went back to King Furniture to look for throw cushions. At $600 for 4 cushions (as lovely as they were), I had to find an alternative. So, using a few of the pieces of fabric that I picked up at the Stitches and Craft Show (Lara Cameron), and some of my stash (generally from Kristen Doran)...... I have finally completed the project. The lounge is very large, so quite a few cushions are required.

I am not sure what other people (or stylists) would think, but each of these fabrics makes me happy to look at them so I think they will stay in place for a while yet.

Wordless Weekend

Well, it is meant to be wordless, but I will add some words here......

Bowral, last weekend for the Tulip festival.
Leaving Sydney.....mild dust storm, gale force winds
Approaching Bowral.... hail, wind, rain
In Bowral.... gale force winds, rain, freezing cold weather, tulips still carrying the dust from the previous dust storm
