This weekend was very productive - two pairs of cushions were made to dress up the freshly re-painted Adirondak chairs.
Hot pink and grey roses on natural linen from Material Obsession, warm grey striped linen, lime green piping and pom-poms from No Chintz. As I was sewing, memories of childhood days at the beach drifted back, when everyone had broad beach umbrellas with white pom-pom trims that riffled in the sea-breeze.
Clever Mr EF made these chairs for me a few years ago after a neighbor received one as a gift; he borrowed it for 2 days to study and make templates, then made them up (I'd only been hinting for, ooh, about 10 years prior)
After living under the Jacarandas for a few years their paint needed freshening - they looked so pretty that I moved them to the front verandah.
A lovely place to wind down and catch the afternoon sun.
That is, if you can get a seat.
And just to re-assure you that I have also been doing some quilting, here's a sneak peek at a preliminary border design (just pinned and roughly laid out) for the mad little birds quilt...
Have a lovely week.
