Thank you for all your lovely comments on last week's Handmade Monday post, i was inspired by your positivity to create two more wild flower plates, and the set is now available on my website, and Etsy shop :)

Village House Cushion
This week my creativity has inspired by buildings... i'm not sure why, perhaps it was after watching all the Jubilee coverage and admiring some of the lovely architecture to be seen in London.
My first make on this theme features the type of village houses that are to be found in my neck of the woods, and a rainbow - in celebration of the sunshine after the rain!
I'm pretty pleased with it on the whole, i like the fabrics i've used for the houses, and the little details like the bud vase in the window...
... but, as you can see, the stitching of the rainbow has caused the linen to stretch and pucker a little. The question is, is the wavy rainbow a happy accident that adds an appealing dimension to the design? or is it a technical fault which means that this cushion is to join the other 'not quite right' cushions that are to be found on the beds, chairs and sofas in my house! I'd love your thoughts :) and don't be shy of letting me know that the latter is the best option, i'm used to the trial and error approach!
I also have another building themed project on the go, but i shall keep that under wraps until next week when hopefully it will be complete! For now though, i will bid you farewell - thank you for visiting :) and do take a look at the other Handmade Monday blogs, there are always lots of lovely things to see!
