The cushion

It's raining. Again. No surprise there for the depths of an Auckland winter! It was beautiful first thing this morning though, so I grabbed my camera, the bag and the cushion and headed down to the beach.


I've finished the cushion as you can see. This is the second item for the Corban Estate summer school I'll be teaching at in February 2011.

You can just about see the two tone black fabric I used for the fantail applique. It really adds a lovely depth.

The beach is just around the corner from our house but I haven't been down there in ages. I think a family trip there this weekend is order! Hope you have a great weekend.

What a great effect with the circles, and I love the colours, gorgeous!

great work - love that last photo. It seems the closer we live to a beach the less often we actually go. Mum takes Elijah down to Browns Bay beach whenever he's there so he gets his fresh air

wow, lovely. The bird really finishes off the design. I know what you mean, we live 5 minutes from the beach too, but it has just been too cold lately to go.

Oh my goodness, my favourite colours and a Fantail all together on the one cushion! I Love it!
