It's all about size

I have been away from the computer, but not 'away'. Instead, I have been up to my neck in polyester filling.

We had a special request for a floor cushion in a size and design we had not done before. As a result we had to make our own insert rather than use a pre-prepared one. As this is a big cushion, it took a lot of filling.

However, while I thought the floor cushion took a lot of filling, it was nothing compared to our next project - an ottoman. Inspired by Danielle, we made this ottoman.

If I didn't know better, I would have sworn that our 'Ella' fabric was made specifically with this project in mind. I was amazed when I saw how it came together at the top like a giant flower.

It is so exciting when something like this happens without it being planned and fascinating to see how designs can take on a whole new look when used in different projects.

Right now at the cut cloth, it's all about size - the bigger the better.

These are amazing and sooo lovely. You are such a clever dear. Well done - I had an arthroscope this week (knee) and would love an ottoman like this!!

Wow - you have been busy! Your ottoman looks gorgeous and the Ella fabric is just perfect for it!
