Now that it’s in the hands of its new owner, I can reveal the Secret Sewing I’ve been working on..
I follow a blog called The Kitchens Garden. It was the first blog I ever followed when I started blogging, and it’s still my favourite of all time. The blog’s resident genius, Cecilia, posted a while back about the joys and ways of saving for something you really want. In her case, it was travel, to visit her far flung children on the other side of the globe.
One thing she said was that her writing chair was becoming bony and uncomfortable. Normally, she’d be thinking of replacing it, but she was Saving, so it would have to last a bit longer. I knew right then that a Chiconian cushion was going to make its home on the seat of that bony old writing chair.
Here’s how it’ll look once stuffed – I’ve given her just the cover to reduce bulk as she’s travelling. She can insert a pad when she gets it home. If you want to know where the name for this post came from, just read the comments on her Saving blog!
A double bonus for us, the lucky few, having lunch together and meeting a mutual hero!
