African Flower Cushion

Hello, how are you? I hope that you are well.

It has been really rather warm and sunny in these parts recently which is a lovely change. I have been working on African Flowers after seeing and and admiring them in blogland. The pattern that I used came from the lovely Elizabeth Cat who has set up a flickr group to show not only her own beautiful creations but also those of others.
Another great source of inspiration for the flowers can be found at Suz's blog where she has created bags, cuchions and blankets using this lovely motif.

My first two african flowers have been used to create a new cushion because some of cushions were looking a bit old and tired. I hope that you like it.




Now I'm off to help the Mr. as we try to sort out my studio. Wish me luck.
I hope you have a good day.
