Young Rosie and I had a lovely day yesterday! Our very special friends came to visit - and while Rosie and her young buddy, Saskia, played dress-ups - us mums, (Alisha and I) played show and tell!
Isn’t this cushion divine?! Alisha made it for Saskia’s bedroom using fabric scraps from her much-loved collection. The hexies are hand quilted in red thread around their perimeters while two slim borders and a red piping edge outline the masterpiece and finish it off beautifully. I love it!
Alisha is a dress-maker by profession and found her new passion for patchwork and quilting just a couple of years ago. She is so good at whatever she lays her hands on, her work is always finished so beautifully. We met through a mutual friend a few years ago (the lovely Caroline who I visited on holidays last October), and hit it off straight away. However it wasn’t until Caroline had her leaving party to move interstate that Alisha and I vowed to stay in touch… and since that time our friendship has really blossomed. I always felt like Caroline gave us both a lovely parting gift in that through our sadness at her moving, Alisha and I found comfort in each other.
Alisha also gifted me these beautiful flowers! They are my perfect posy… I could imagine them freshly picked from the meadow and bestowed to a farmers wife who put them in a pretty jug set upon a lace cloth on her table. They smell divine too!
Till next time!
