my creative space...

Some of the biggest reasons I love this crafty blogging community is for the friendships, the inspiration and the generosity. There is one of these bloggers who fills all of those categories (and many more), Ms CurlyPops. I was on the twitter, admiring her gorgeous range of Go Granny cushions (the grey one in particular) when next thing, in my letterbox was a Go Granny cushion panel, in grey, for me to make my very own! As a "get well soon" present! I truly love that woman!

I thought with such a beautiful panel it really deserved a well made backing, so once again I cheated a little. I bought one of the clearance cushions from work with a lovely black cotton drill backing and well placed zip, unpicked the back from the front and put it all back together again, et voila, my very own Go Granny cushion! And it only took me about 15 minutes and no swearing about zip installation!

Aww thanks... you're such a sweetie!
But, you also made me laugh because I'd be swearing more about unpicking than I would about a zipper. Hilarious my dear!

How gorgeous. Your living room looks like it's a furniture showroom, so lovely! The panel matches your decor perfectly!

oh how lovely that Curlypops is one special lady and what a lot of patience you must have to unpick I am with Cam, I think I would much prefer to put in a zipper, I hope you are feeling stronger and I am sending you many cyber hugs, I don't even visit blogs much anymore due to lack of strength but I am in the process of trying to change that and drop in on everyone xxxxx Oh I love love love Betty too she is adorable
