I've finally finished my ' Cat and Mouse ' Scatty scatter cushion and it is stunning and proves that hard work does pay off.
When I sit down with an idea in my head it can take hours, days and even weeks sometimes to get the design done and the pride you feel of spending hours and hours on something and then to finally see it finished, well, it's certainly a special feeling.
I'm happy to admit that I spent 14 hours on this cushion, from start to finish, and had to sew it up in stages to ensure it was done just as I'd intended in the design process. I do spend lots of time on my designs and the appliqué work is rather intricate at times and so lots of patience is required but the results are so wonderful to see.
Here's my finished ' Cat and Mouse ' Scatty scatter cushion and I hope you agree that it's a beauty.
I must now spend the rest of the week working on more orders and the design work for a custom designed set of two cushions and matching hanging heart and another order I've just had in for a handmade large linen bag with some of my ' Hooly Hoop Art ' on the front, exciting!
Button Fayre is continually evolving and I feel very proud of my achievements and hard work and have been very lucky to of have so much support too. I've also made some wonderful friends, each one with their own life story and interests and I love the diversity of people, we're all so amazing and unique, just like our abilities and imaginations.
