But on such a grey, chilly day, this cushion makes me think of summer.
The stripes are reminiscent of those extremely hard and sweet sticks of rock you used to buy to take back for your friends when you were on holiday by the sea ( or am I showing my age here?).
Or it reminds me of deck chair stripes.
Either way, its summery!!!
Made from a vintage floral barkcloth fabric and a new thick cotton stripe, it is rather cheery.
The stripe which looks turquoise is actually more green than it appears - funny that the camera just wouldn't reproduce the right colour.
I've had this before, it can't cope with bluey greens very well for some reason and I've tried changing the colour settings but it didn't make any difference.
As it so dull today I've edited this post to add a few blue sky photos from the Lake District
And I thought some strawberries might be nice too!!
Hope the sun is shining where you are!
