gratification. I find I need a lot of this when I am working on quilts.

Another cushion which is a very late birthday gift.

Ink & Spindle, Honeycomb Kei and Kimono that Bianca kindly gave me last year. They make a great combination.

My latest love, 100% silk from Liberty.

This will be hemed today and on my neck this afternoon. Purchased from here.

Liberty…silk are you kidding me!!!!

Gorgeous work on the cushion, I'm sure it will make up for the late gift giving.

The cushion is gorgeous, again a really good selection of fabrics.

Be sure to show us the scarf made from the Liberty Silk – it looks devine!

Great pics.

another gorgeous cushion!! I am thinking that maybe you should become a designer. I would let you lavish my house in beautiful colors and cushions any day….you have such an amazing eye for pulling it all together, ever so perfectly.

Ok, how about we try this for a change: you knit a scarf, I’ll sew a cushion? Though I can understand why you'd just want to stick with 100% Liberty around your neck! Mmmm.

That cushion is divine! I get that gratification thing completely. X

Your cushion is wonderful – I love the combination of prints you have used.

I didn't know Liberty did silk. I am sitting here drooling!

Oh no… Must Resist Liberty Silk…
Gorgeous cushion!

Beautiful cushion, but that swathe of silk has me drooling- was it overlocked (hehe)?

A bit of instant gratification is a good thing Kate. And you do it so well.
