 Nice to be making cushions again! I love to match all the delicious colours of my old Sylko threads to the fabrics I'm using,
 including this beautiful length of French curtain that I recently bought from Sue Meager.
 I'm making for a fair that I'm doing for the first time, The 'Modern Makers Fair' at the Bedruthan Steps Hotel near Newquay this coming weekend, 23rd and 24th April (see side bar). There will be over 50 contemporary designer-makers from Cornwall and further afield selling their work. Tickets are free but must be downloaded in advance via the website, by clicking here.
As well as cushions I will also have a collection of my shell collages for sale, both large and small, and plenty of handmade cards. 
I am on a 'demonstration' stand, so I shall be attempting to recreate a little corner of my studio and doing a bit of stitching and arranging so that visitors can get an idea of my working methods and what inspires me. Hope some of you can make it along! x


  1. With such a stunning fabric the result could be just wonderful, wonderful work, my lovely friend !

    Hope your week is off to a great start, dearest Christine, I wish you lovely days to come,
    sending love to you


  2. The colours together in the box look beautiful, you could almost paint with them.
    Love the sea collages too. Hope all goes well -I'd be there if I could. Miss these kind of events here in Brittany there aren't many.

  3. Gorgeous fabric. Hope your fair is a great success. Too far for me unfortunately.

  4. What beautiful work Christine... Love the fabric from Sue Meager it is delicious to say the least.
    Do you have any more fair dates at all?
