Oh Crap!! My catchphrase ATM

The last couple of months have been full on for me so much happening its hard to keep track of the days and events So When Vic emailed me on Monday and said it was posting day for the cushion cover swap over at Punky and Me. I said "Oh Crap!" Mind you my cover was made sewing and dyeing and printing have been my refuge from the madness! But living so far out of town meant I had to wait to the next day to post it! Anyway yesterday I happily expressed posted it and scribbled a hasty note (apologies) to my swappee, The guy at the post office must have been in the same addled frame of mind as me for today I received my receipt and tracking number in the mail (he forgot to give it to me) or maybe my addledness was infectious! Today I realized I did not take a pic and went "Oh Crap!" again
So I have gathered some of the left over patches and offcuts and made a composite to show It does not resemble the finished design but at least you can see the colours and prints all the fabric is homespun that I sun coloured and screen printed I used a Seminole patchwork technique to put it all together and must say its conception and construction gave me great pleasure I truly hope the recipient enjoys it too Thank you for the opportunity to take part and despite my scatterbrained actions I had a ball!


  1. Don't you hate it when you are waving goodbye to the postman and then remember that you forgot to take a happy snap of your hard work? Your work is always gorgeous, Julie. I am sure that your recipient will be rapt.

  2. I hope the recipient takes a bunch of photos so we can all see! It looks like a beautiful cushion.

  3. looks wonderful Julie and wow, you did so much work on it!
    hopefully your swap partner can take some pics.

    thanks for popping by! so lovely to come & visit your beautiful space.
    My dream was to always be an art teacher ♥

  4. Wow you have put so much work into the cushion cover. The colours are beautiful and so is the decorative stitching. This will be well loved!

  5. I'm sure it will be very well received, the colours look wonderful.

  6. Hi JulieAnn! Your cushion arrived last Wednesday and looks brilliant in the room of one sweet little two year old. I've posted a couple of photos, but I'm not entirely happy with them. I've been trying for a few days to get a good shot, but that particular bedroom doesn't seem to have enough natural light to really bring out those colours. Thanks again, you did a really lovely job with both the design and the fabric {wow} to make something that is completely one of a kind! Yay!
