What better way to celebrate World Environment Day than share one of my favourite
Green and Pink!
I have my dear Mum to thank for this obsession.
These were the colours that she loved to use in her home decorating and I can remember many a cushion cover, curtains, paint effect and bedspread from my childhood.
In fact the photo (above) was of a piece I was working on nearly five years ago, when she passed away.
I do like a quilt which includes some other stitchery - blanket, chain and herringbone featured here. Kinda gives it an extra dimension, don't cha think?
Mum never got to see this but I think she would have liked it.
It's probably time to get it finished!
Originally it was to be a cushion cover, but I have decided it will look better as a centre for a
border type quilt.
(More photos soon, when some more definite design ideas are in place. )
Have a happy Sunday!
