Memory cushions

Mavis

Mavis was one of my best friends mum, she spent her last months in the care home that my mum is in, so I saw quite a bit of her in her last few months.

I've had Mavis's clothes for a while now as her daughter was in no rush for a cushion to be made, and as with all friends/relatives they sometimes get put in a never ending queue!

However I think the cushion was worth the wait.

 Mavis's cushion made from two skirts, a suit, a pair of trousers and a scarf.

 I must have got it right as the one cushion is now turning into four, along with a quilt. The quilt has yet to be decided on but I will post it when its finished.

I think Mavis would have approved.

All In A Name

Good Morning everyone! You may or may not have noticed that we have changed our name to karenbarclay.com. The reasons for this are that primarily Karen was never particularly convinced about alittlebitofnice feeling that it was too long and tricky to type into a search engine.

A New Baby Quilt

We have had a commission for a very special baby quilt, we decided  to use Tilda fabric coordinated with French white and taupe linen, and the added touch of some of our Peony and Sage Hare material, including a half cheeky hare!
