This is “Reindeer” which I made for my sister-in-law and she kindly photographed it in situ.
“Monkey – A Tale of Two Continents” is another linen cushion made for PG tips. It resembles a movie poster with scenes of London in the background on one side and India on the other with critics’ comments below.
As it’s half-term I’m displaying a Disney cushion of Minnie, Donald and Goofy in the Ice Cream Parlour. It’s 100% cotton made by Cole & Mason in the UK with a white cotton reverse and dates to the 1970s. One of a pair, the other featuring Mickey, Pluto and Goofy doing the washing-up – having no money to pay for the sodas? – which you can see on my website where there is a third of Minnie and Mickey in the diner.
I love the colours of this 50s design in orange and ochre. It is 24″ with a beige reverse in heavy cotton and a zip fastening.
Thinking ahead to summer I’ve uploaded some linen cushions in Gallery 7 which can be used outside on garden furniture as they are more robust than the scarf cushions. Also great for childrens’ rooms as they can be easily machine-washed.
This is a new line for summer: linen tea-towel cushions for outside use on garden furniture. This one is a Pat Albeck design for the National Trust with a white calico reverse measuring 28″x17″. They are pillow-shaped so don’t throw away old pillows as they can still be used outdoors. I will be uploading some more designs later today.
