And Sewing Too…

Slowly, slowly, slowly, my creative mojo returns.

I made this cushion cover using some lovely batiks my sister bought me last year, and my favourite “liberated log cabin” technique. In fact, I was so liberated that I didn’t even rotary cut the strips, I just tore them! Quite cathartic and slightly terrifying.

    Newfound freedom can indeed quite frightening while also, as you say, cathartic. 🙂

    Beautiful colors, I like how the strips are in a slight angle. Pillows are easy and a fun way to espress your artistic needs.

  3. That’s gorgeous! Fabulous colours for a winter’s day and I love the slightly askew block.

    Beautiful and vibrant colors! Batiks have such a nice texture compared to “normal” fabrics.
