cushy old time

I love this map cushion of Australia. I've been hoarding this fabric panel for some time now, it was the centre of the tablecloth from which I cut all the birds for those florally birdy cushions that were such a hit. Almost kept this one for myself, hard to part with but I'm pleased to say it has gone all the way to Italy to spend the rest of it's days.
These next little guys were such a pleasure to make from a vintage tea towel from Lightning Ridge, so grassy green is that background. Got to love a joey in the pouch! Kangas were teamed with an awesome vintage wool plaid in fab orange & brown. Worked a little hand top stitching along the panels in green Japanese sashiko thread just the jazz her up a bit. Over all quite snazzy I believe. Hope you like them too.

Here's a quick little snapshot of my cushions in Mooch Inside at Hardys Bay where they will be retailing. The Kanga cushions along with my remaining wildflower ones are currently for sale on the newly established online store. Quite exciting that their online shop is happening as it has been in the making for such a long time. Hooray!
