My Woodland Bedroom

My guest room has been the latest room in the house to be beautified. I have settled on a woodland theme, a while ago I made a few cross stitch lovelies from Storyland Cross Stitch. My husband and I brought the gorgeous picture on the fireplace on our honeymoon in Switzerland.

Recently I stumbled upon Sew Charming in Lutterworth, although my first love is Crafty Sew & So I must admit I somewhat fell in love with the beautiful range of fabrics in store.

I scooped up this Sherwood collection along with a wonderfully soft Linea Linea fabric, and quickly got to work on my cushions, I basically raided Pinterest for different ideas.  I used the same envelope cushion pattern as I did in my last blog. I decided to go for appliqué over patchwork because I’ve just brought myself a fancy new Brother sewing machine which has lots of lovely top stitching. For two of my cushions I used wonderful free downloads from Love Patchwork and Sewing, Issue Seventeen has a perfect fox appliqué, it’s all to size being printed out on A4 paper.

I stuffed his little tummy with wadding before sewing it up

The next one is a fantastic stag’s head pattern also from Love Patchwork and Quilting this time from issue thirteen

I also took triangle templates for my next cushion from issue thirteen.

My final cushion I used up some hexes that I’ve got laying around for a blanket which I’m not sure will ever get finished.

Here they are all together with a cushion I cross stitched along with the frames. 20151210_113028

I think after Christmas I might hang up the wreath amongst the cross sticth the colours match perfectly.

If you want to see how I made this check out my other blog with Crafty Sew & So.

Also if you love the woodland theme check out Waterstones book of the year, The Fox and the Star. It is uniquely beautiful both in words and illustrations.

For over a year now I have been on the way to recovery from an eating disorder and depression! One thing that’s helped me a lot is writing down my achievements. To start with it was little more than ‘got dressed’ or ‘ate without feeling anxious’. More recently my accomplishments have been more substantial. Here I will document my bakes, writing, crafts, textiles, gardening and other bits and pieces.
