homemade efforts...


' what on Earth'??...I guess you are thinking...well, its Nao's xmas present i lovingly made for him in my shed. its a neck cushion, ok?

but no ordinary neck cushion, 'cause this ones made of Liberty print cotton and cashmere on the other side. It has a removable cushion that can be replaced with an inflatable one {for aircraft or whatever}. I really feel sorry for Nao that this is as exciting as it gets for xmas pressies...but as i say, a lot of love went into this!

in fact he's been using it every day since xmas as it is perfect for computering/twittering whilst lying in a horizontal position. Not only that but i made some lavender bags to fit inside, an a small handkerchief to fit in the top pocket of his snazzy jackets.

it may not be a diamond necklace, but its the thought that counts, right?

  2. oh, nothing is as great as a proper neck cushion, really!
    - I can't live without mine (though it is far from as nice as this Nao's!)

  4. my cousin made me a neck pillow and filled it with cinnamon and rice so that it can be heated up in the microwave before putting it around my neck! such a thoughtful idea!

  7. That is a brilliant gift, it's not only the thought that counts but the amount of work you put into the present makes it so much more meaningful.

  13. You made them with so much LOVE!
    I love liberty fabric and this pattern is lovely.
    You probably don't have time, but I'm sure those lavender bags tied with ribbon would sell wonderfully in Rust
    Love Kat x

  15. I love everything that you make! I'm still trying to figure out how you upholstered that lovely chair. Seattle really must get a Liberty shop, I'm dying of envy!
