Studio Mirror & Shelves

My hubby finally made it to my studio on Saturday to finish off a few things I wanted done when renovating.  That was 14 months ago but who's counting (I AM).  So I now have up my pretty shelves, framed stitcheries, splashback in bathroom, towel rack etc.  I found the lovely mirror last year at a second hand furniture store in Beaudesert.  It had been cut off an umbrella/ hall stand and repaired for painting.  I like the shabby look of the stripped paint so left it.  It will be a great hanger for my pretty antique lace.  Just ignore the reflection in the mirror of my messy work table (overflowing with fabrics as usual) Rob :)

I have been making alot of cushion covers lately.  The above cushions were made from leftover fabrics from a lovely quilt I have made for my friend.  I am also stitching and embellishing some cushions from Rachel Ashwell's Garden Rose collection.  I have cut the fabric for a pretty raggy quilt and the leftover strips are sewn together to make cushion covers.  Then I am stitching on daisy lace, ric rac and pom poms.  Great way to use up your fabrics.  Regards Rob :)
