I love blue and white ticking

 I spend so much time in the conservatory. I do a lot of sewing and knitting in there and it is quite like having the garden as a room!  I needed some really comfy cushions, as the Ikea Swedish style sofa which I bought for our Gite in France and transferred to the conservatory when we moved back to the UK (waste not want not!) wasn't as comfortable as I would like. So I raided my fabric stash and made a comfy cushion in this great cotton blue and white ticking.
It is 50cm square and I have made it in an envelope style and the cushion pad is duck feather and down, comfy or what! Just to need to buy some more ticking and make some more!
The blossom on my trees is absolutely fabulous I couldn't resist taking a photo.


  1. What a lovely cushion! I love ticking, too. Great to discover your blog!
