Cushions Galore, April 2012 -- Easter Cushions
April 2nd 2012
Hello and welcome to new subscribers in April.
Spring has certainly lately given us a taste of what we all hope is still to come with some lovely sunny weather that is perfect for picnics and eating outdoors.
April is a very changeable month from being one of the hottest months of the years to almost returning to winter with some snow falling.
But whatever the weather April is usually the time of year in which Easter falls. Easter is never at the same time each year so April may just see the end of this holiday or have it at the beginning or middle of the month.
Easter can also bring a different shape to your cushions. I have done pages on a heart and circular shapes but an oval shape would be slightly different. These can then be decorated with ribbons and given as presents or to decorate your room.
This is a time of new life and new beginnings, you can make new covers showing young animals, birds or the may symbols Easter brings.
As well as a new cushion shape, the oval shape can be used in bunting as well.
New pages this month
I have been quite busy this month on a personal level and have only been able to do a page on Easter.
Coming up next time
Next month I hope to have done another page of a different patchwork design.
Enjoy making your cushions.
