Let's talk cushions.

 Such a lot has happened since last we met, so much in fact that I'm not sure what you've seen and what you haven't, so today I think we'll just talk....
Not just any old cushions...MarmaladerRose cushions.
Yes, cushions will ease me into blog posting very nicely.
There are rather a lot of them now... these are my answer to a print problem I've got. You see so far I've not been able to successfully recreate my original felt pictures as paper prints. I get asked quite a lot if I do limited edition prints...or ...any prints at all in fact.
 It seems I'm able to have my work reproduced on fabric very well but when it comes to art paper, they just appear flat and dead. Not at all the quality that I expect. It's very strange.
 But the cushions... soft suedey cushions...
 Washable suedey cushions...
They look really rather wonderful...
Not to mention feeling rather soft and scrummy too!
They have on more than one occasion been mistaken for felted wool. Many a hand has stroked and caressed expecting to feel wool and stitches but instead has glided over their velvety finish.
So maybe we'll just stick to cushions, oh! And the odd greeting card or two. 

Till next time (and hopefully it will be sooner rather than later)
love Fi x

Hi Fi, definitely long time since you last posted. I only asked my friend Jo, the other day via email, if you were at Yarndale and she said yes she'd seen you, so that eased my mind. Of course I didn't make it this year. Too far to travel (giggle). The cushions look absolutely fantastic, even though they aren't felted. Thanks for sharing and hope you pop by more often with your beautiful work. Take care.

Hello Fi, congratulations on your continuing success and expansion of your business; I have long admired your beautiful work. Although it is a shame you can't replicate the work on paper, as it is captured so well on this suedette fabric, you could experiment with framing fabric prints perhaps. I hope you find a solution.
