Inspirations Calendar | August Project
30th July 2021
It’s about this time of the year that we’ve all earned a bit of a mid-year break. We should all have the opportunity to spend a few hours or days (or perhaps weeks!) sitting comfortably on the sofa, with some cosy cushions, a pot of tea at hand and our stitching. Well, the August calendar project is one that speaks to that wish and gives us a perfect excuse.
In Good Time by Di Kirchner from Inspirations issue #78, is a stunning crewel cushion featuring bold colours and a wonderful range of stitches. The traditional floral design displays all that is good from the Jacobean style, but with a delightfully modern twist in the colour and layout.
The design is set off beautifully by the red fabric used to construct the cushion. It would look perfect in any living room and on any sofa.
So, we’re declaring August as the month we need to take a break. It is the height of summer in the north, and the depths of winter in the south, both ideal times to settle down on the sofa with a project like In Good Time to complete.
Once you’ve worked this beautiful design, the cushion will add to the comfort and decadence of your favourite stitching space. Then, when you return to the busy routine of real life, it will sit as a reminder of that time of relaxation that was so well deserved.
