studio details : a keeper!

emma lamb

Hello my lovelies! I feel like I've gone AWOL these last couple of days. While it has been hot and humid here (very hot and humid for this wee part of the world, we so need a really good thunderstorm to freshen things up a bit, you know what I mean!?) I have been struck with a powerful crafty urge and just need to make things. Lots of things! The very first thing I felt I needed to finish was a fabby wee cushion just for me. Yeah, this one is a keeper...

Yay, I have my very own Copenhagen pillow! I don't have a name for this wee lady yet but I am thinking I should call her Yvonne after the fabulous lady who designed the pattern. Yes, that is the lovely Yvonne of Yvestown!

I must admit to admiring her gorgeous pattern for such a long time while simultaneously dithering over the yarn I wanted to use. Do I want wool, or cotton, or maybe even the dreaded acrylic so I can bung it in the wash without worrying!? Okay, so definitely a 'no' to the acrylic... ;)
It wasn't until a couple of months ago after my Mam found me a huge stash of lovely discontinued cotton yarn that I had my eureka moment. Since then I have been pootling along working on an odd square here and there until I had enough to make the front of a wee cushion. All I had to do over the last couple of days was whip up a backing, stitch it together and trawl my substantial button stash for the smoothest and whitest mother of pearl I could find, et voila... Miss Yvonne!

Oh, and I love how perfectly she co-ordinates with my lovely clover pillow from this fabulous Etsy shop. I so wish I could have all the pillows in there too!
