Gorgeous cushions!

For weeks, I seem to have been working away on blinds and curtains for my daughter's new house. Not my favourite job, although after making ten roman blinds for her, I certainly think I have served my apprenticeship!

As she works full time in a very demanding job, she has had little time to help. She is great at the designing and planning and loves doing the "Ideal Home" bit, choosing colours, fabrics and accessories. This weekend however, she decided she wanted to make cushions for her new bedroom. My sewing room is always well stocked with remnants and all sorts of haberdashery bits and bobs. So, off she went in search of the materials to make her cushions.

About three hours later, with a little help from me, she had produced these two little cushions in her grey/pink colour scheme.
I don't have any pink or grey buttons left in my button jar but isn't that what we save them for?

Those are beautiful, I love the gray with all the buttons. I have a button jar filled to the top, I might have to give this a try.

I saw you on another blog and thought I would pop over for a visit, I'm glad I did.

Most impressive - love buttons en masse like that.

What dedication - ten blinds! Would you come and help in my house, please?!

Oh, I love those cushions! So pretty! Especially the one with the flower-like creation on its corner.
