I know I used the word stylish before - I fear that might me a touch optimistic. I am sure a true dedicated home interior stylinesta would have themes, colours & textures that you would follow to complete a prescribed look. Me, well I am more of a wing & a prayer kinda gal - so my cushions have been inspired by so far: Gorgeous yarn, recycling & necessity.
|Simple, Stylish - I hope!|

Then there is the 'necessity' cushion. What creates such urgency that necessitates the creation of this cushion? Rugby, more importantly, All Black rugby watching. Have you ever tried knitting during a test match? The the test match itself - it's not easy, you have to select a project that is a) simple in design, so there is no risk of losing your place when crucial points in the game are being scored. b) a project that can sustain knitting after multiple glasses of wine. c) a pattern that is easily memorized so no pattern referral is required otherwise distracting you from the game.
With all these factors in mind I dragged out the scraps bag & cast on a log cabin cushion. The result has been fabulous - so much so I will be entering it into the local A&P Show this year. So a cushion that has been incredibly successful in fill my necessity, as well as providing me a great level of joy.
|I'm really enjoying the little wedges of happiness.|
