A couple of weeks ago I gave you a glimpse of my latest w.i.p. and can now fully reveal it. As it was a present I had to wait to reveal it until it had reached it’s destination.
The pale colour is sand, a pale grey and three blues. In July we were on holiday in France when we stayed at the Blue House B&B in Ducey. If you’re ever in the area you have to go. Staying with Nick and Di is like staying with friends, they make you feel so welcome and put their home and garden at your disposal. Plus they have 2 rather cute dogs. Here’s Franc.
In the morning when he was full of beans both ears would be upright. Throughout the day he could be seen with just one ear upright unless he’d just had a nap. Both ears would be down by bed time. He’s only 3 months old in the photo and is growing at the rate of a 1lb per week. So cute. Millie, their older dog, is still wondering when he’ll be leaving although she puts up with his antics very well.
Being the Blue House B&B I obviously needed to make the cushion in blue and as they have pets I made it from acrylic wool so it can be washed in the machine.
The buttons are recycled from my stash. If clothes are worn out I always recover any reusable parts like buttons and zips.
Sunshine bleaches the colour out a bit in photos, they were a little more vibrant than this.
I was very pleased with how it turned out and have it on good authority that it’s been road tested by Franc.
