Thats me, second from the right!

Simone, I copied your picture, I hoped you wouldn't mind.

Well friends, here is the cushion in all its glory, second from the right. AND it sold today as well to a lady up in Queensland! But I have the fabric ready to make another at a moments notice. Cut it at the same time but never sewed it up.
A few months ago I listed this on Made It. It also made a 'Monday Must Have'. A stylist by the name of Marie Nichols contacted me and requested would I send it to her in Sydney for a photo shoot she was doing for Notebook.
I have to say I had never heard of her up until then so I was a little sceptical however a little googling sorted that out. So up it went to Sydney, back again after about a week and then I just waited and thought that was that. But I was wrong and here it is.
THANK YOU to everyone for your lovely words of support and congratulations! Sharing my excitement is the best part of it all.
Thank you also to the lovely Simone of Beach Vintage for mentioning this in her blog post. She also got a mention in the same article as a blog worth checking on!
And it certainly is!!
It's a lovely article and Marie did a wonderful job with the styling. Thank you Marie!!!(Oh how I would have loved to be a stylist!)
I remember how exited A-M was to see her HOUSE! in a magazine, I'm doing a jig over a cushion!!! LOL!

Wow Irene!!! So awesome!!! Your pillows are just beautiful. I love that picture! yay! :) :)

So about the citra-solv, it's an orange based cleaner/solvent. It states in the ingredients the main ingredient is D-Limonene which is the clear liquid from the peel of an orange! crazy huh? wonder who figured that one out! :)

Hope that helps & you can find something similar down under!
