WHAT I’M WORKING ON: WOOLEN CUSHION

I’ve been feeling so inspired to get back into sewing recently. My poor sewing machine Pauline (of course I’ve named her) has been sitting packed away for months, but last week Graeme and I finally got around to setting up our studio space and she’s been sitting happily on my new desk ever since. I’ve never really had a good space to sew before, so I’m finding this very exciting. I’ve also been spending a lot of time perusing sewing blogs and there are so many projects I want to try. I have grand plans of sewing myself a skirt or a dress, but so far I’ve been struggling to find the right fabric. Most of my fabric reserves are still in Glasgow, and all the ones I’ve seen in the shops seem a bit too summery. We are heading into fall, after all. So for now, I decided I’d start out with a simple cushion project as a warm up, inspired by this post.

Bo certainly seems to approve of the cushion. She got a bit curious when I was taking pictures of my project, and as always she ended up stealing the show. Cutest cushion model or what?
