Now that I am feeling better I am trying to finish up some projects; making pillows for the couch in the media/library is first on the list. This couch badly needs to be recovered but until a certain Miss Twiggley is completely trained to not scratch on the furniture (she is doing much better) it isn't going to happen. So for now I have covered it with various throws and even a table cloth...actually I rather like the casual look and it certainly is comfy, but it needs some accent pillows to tie it in with the rest of the room and add a bit of elegance.
I started out with these fabrics...I really like the drab green with the dragonfly burgundy pattern and the tone-on-tone gold stripe is perfect...
...but the checked fabric and tapestry fabric doesn't work with the toile in the drapes as well as this bold stripe and the addition of the needle point cat pillow.
The decorative cording and fringe were perfect ~ I love trim, the more the better!
Voila! I am finished.
Just what I wanted and very easy to do except for all the ruffles, I hate making ruffles but sometimes they are necessary to get the right look and on the gold pillows they were perfect.
Cozy, comfortable and Miss Twiggley proof, what more could I ask for.
Now what is left on the project list...oh yes! planting the vegetable garden.
Thank you for visiting ~ Have a lovely day
