Advent calendar 6

"Well...", you might say, "how many cushions does one need...?" 
To that, my friends, my answer will always be: 
"You can never have too many!"

I know, I am probably borderline cushion-o-holic, but so be it, because when in my head I suddenly saw this spicy number, I just had to make it. Thinking (hoping) it can be used other seasons than just for Christmas, as I use cinnamon all year round, I set to work with some leftover fabric from a dress I hardly ever wore, bought for £ 3 some years ago in the sales, and which has previously served another cushion-y purpose you might remember from...:


So, there we are, the Swenglish cushion family keeps growing and 
has probably not seen its last family member yet...

Now, what else might one make on the theme of cinnamon, I wonder...
... time for some spicy pondering!

Warm regards to you all, dear readers!

    I love your blog.

  8. Åh, vad jag tycker om dina kombinationer här med en vit bas och sen de mörkare naturfärgerna! Kudden är supersnygg och Cinnamon är ett så vackert namn! Mycket finare än kanel!:)


  9. I agree, you can never have too many cushions.
    I am rebuilding my cushion collection since our move to South America when my husband thought we should Throw/Give Things Away.
    Since then, I no longer listen to him.

  10. Hej Helena,

    Å nej, kuddar kan man inte ha för många av tycker ju jag förstås... kanhända att min garderob, där jag förvarar plädar, filtar, kuddar, täcken och även en och annan sovsäck, nog är av en helt annan åsikt. Det är verkligen superfullt där nu och jag får knycka till dörren snabbt som sjutton så den inte far upp igen, haha! Tur det finns lås på den dörren! ;))

    Din kanelkudde blev jättefin! Tänk vad bra det är med stuvbitar och gamla plagg. Det ser lite trixigt ut att sy bokstäverna och där hade förmodligen mitt tålamod brustit tror jag!

    Stor kram till dig!

  11. Hi Helena
    Uuuuh... I guess, we two should start a self-help group. I love cushions too and my hubby thinks we've got already too many. No way, that can't be :o).
    I love your cushions, they are beautiful.
    Have a cozy evening!
