In other news, the ophthalmology appointment came through yesterday morning and I’ll be seeing the specialist on 10th November. Thank you once more for your amazing support during the gritted-teeth period. Talking of teeth … no, you don’t’ want to know!

I’ve put my money where my mouth is, bought some cushions with my designs from Redbubble and discovered the difficulty of matching colours when comparing an original design, the computer and the reality. Which of the cushions were going to work against my Duck Egg Blue sofas (Laura Ashley). In the photograph above you can see a perfect match between the charity buy cushion on the left and a does it?-doesn’t it? match with my Petite Rose Confection cushion on the right.

The photograph — iPhone — distorts the colour of the sofa which is a more elegant Duck Egg crossed with Eau de Nil than the rather dull greyish-green above. The charity cushion works perfectly whether in electric light, sunlight or grey light,  as does the Petite Rose Confection.

In this second photograph, it looks as if Hummingbird Tune is out of step with the sofa but it actually works in all lights, just not the photograph!img_0488

The Georgian Stripes Duck Egg as above, which I designed specifically for these sofas, doesn’t work at all, least of all in the photograph, except in electric light! I’m going to have to design some more stripes that are a better match. I had originally wanted the sofas in the regency stripes that Laura Ashley were selling. However, between creating and saving the sofas to my wish list and actually going into the store to order, the company discontinued the fabric. I do love what I ended up choosing but I want stripes in there somewhere!

I’ll keep you posted.

Simple background of Georgian stripes, partly created for the cushions I want to buy for my new sofa!

By the way, I’ve been feeling a bit weary of late so I’m not sure how much of an appearance I shall be making this week on my blogs — except First Night History for which I have a backlog of drafts ready to publish — or visiting and liking all your posts. Please bear with me.

I recently sold a couple of Birdcage Blossom postcards. Which was nice! And I thought I’d show you some of the other products with the design as suggestions for Christmas.

As I’ve just sold another postcard of Birdcage Blossom, I thought you might like to see one of the original posts relating to this collage from two years ago. Whenever I look at it, I find myself amazed that it was me who created it!
