Butterfly Path – a slow cloth cushion

Another finished piece of slow cloth from the cloth-to-cloth workshop …. a contemporary country cushion, in soft blues.

Butterfly Path ... modern country cushion

My beautiful blue block, embroidered over to bring out the butterflies and send them on a meandering path amongst the little flowers on this cushion …. I love the way they soften all the strong geometric patterns in the underlying cloth.

Summer Accessories – Blush Corsages in vintage lace and cotton

One of this year’s colour themes, “blush”, gives a chic twist to ‘pretty’, with underwear becoming outerwear, glamourous and sensual. Chiffon, lace, satin ribbon, pearls, crystals, mother-of-pearl and feathers in soft natural tones of pink, rosewood, skin, cloud and cyclamen are strong features in this look, so I’ve added to my range of accessories to work with that look:

Old-fashioned charm, invoking nostalgic images of tea-dances and village garden parties, using soft creams and whites with subtle hints of colour, worked in vintage lace, broderie anglaise and scraps of ribbon – these clips work equally well in a formal setting or for a hint of glamour in everyday use.

Still staying with the theme, but moving into the warmer golds and caramels of the season …

Fabric Corsages ... apricot, chocolate and cream

Flowers and butterflies, from soft and subtle golden ribbon roses to bold caramel alice bands and delicious honey-gold carnation ruffles, these accessories give a chic twist to any outfit … and they don’t need a special occasion to be enjoyed.
