The Jewels of Decoration

What are the jewels of decoration, they are something that the eye travels to when you first walk into a room.

This could be a picture on a wall, a fancy lamp on the side table or an interesting cushion on your chair.

Now I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My first set of knitting needles, were metal ones that my Pa shortened for me when I was about 5 or 6 years old.

At the moment I am trying to create enough handmade items to start a shop online, hence the stack of quilt tops waiting to be quilted. I am also enjoying the process of designing quilt tops with stitcheries in them.

One of the many things I am creating are cushions I have done crazy patchwork, knitted and beaded. Here is an example of the beaded cushion, here is a close up of the beading.

It is reversable, the back is a different material and I used matching ribbon as the fasteners.

So if I am not pottering in the kitchen I am sitting and hand stitching my quilt tops. Which I enjoy immensely.

Well I am off now to finish stitching the last panels of my new design, before I cut and sew it into a quilt top.
