About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Patchwork Cushion!

What a day!! The Olympic torch passed near the school I am working at today. The torch passed us twice  and we had a great time cheering and waving - and we were all pretty tired by the end of it all!! Didn't make it onto the TV even though I stood and chatted to the man from the local TV station!! And I still have a stinking cold - so thankfully the weather held off. 

Anyway, here's a patchwork cushion I made recently as a gift for a friend - it went with the funky foam flower card from my previous post!!

The material for the 2.5" squares came from a variety of places including Pelenna Patchworks and The Cotton Patch, while the cushion pad and backing material were from my local Fabric Land.
