Stitchin and Stitchin


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Inspired by Kali at Enjoying the Journey I appliqued (well, sort of...I really just stitched them on there) these hearts onto my gingham cushions (from the church yard sale a while back). I had wondered how I would keep my old stuff while I brightened up the room and then I saw Kali's cushion. I'm still not sure about all this color! Those are the curtains under the cushions. The tops (same fabric as hearts) are the rod sleeves. I thought I would make some cushions out of the blue but as it turns out, there was not one scrap of the material left over (unless you count selvage). I won't know if I'm happy with them until I've hung them. I did hang them in the bedroom just to see if the two panels are even and they are, so I was very happy about that. :)



Weird color combo, isn't it? hmmmm I may have to live with this a while.

Thanks everyone! I feel lots better about it all together now. Guess I need to trust myself more on these things. :)

Kali said...

Wow ~ how quick are you? These look so sweet Lisa, and I'm with the others, the colours look great together...Well I'm off to bed, I hope you have a really lovely day :)

Lisa said...

Thanks Kali. Sweet dreams. :)

Vintage Wine said...

Yes, you should trust yourself but I know how difficult that can be. I find it very easy to doubt myself & it`s not easy to stop doing that, but I`m trying :-) It`s really a shame that it should be so difficult for us to see our good sides, but so easy to see the bad ones!
A long comment but what I really wanted to say is that your work is beautiful & there`s no need for you to doubt that ;-)

Lisa said...

You are so kind. I enjoy your blog so much and it tickles me to no end that you visit mine. :)

Vintage Wine said...

Thank you Lisa! That`s so sweet & I`m almost blushing now :-) I can`t tell you how much I appreciate it!
I really enjoy your blog too! By the way, I hope it`s alright that I`ve linked to your blog from mine :-)

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness, yes! I was planning to add you to mine as well. lol

Vintage Wine said...

I thought you wouldn`t mind but I wanted to make sure :-)

Karen said...

Your pillows look very nice. I think the colours complement each other nicely. At least they do in the picture. :)

Lisa said...

Karen, thanks. :) I like the pillows alot. I'm still not sure about the curtains. They kind of bug me. I may make some changes. I'll take pics first, though. lol
