Art in the house (and other pastimes)

Art , here there and everywhere...

Found some odd scraps of cream colored linen and calico amongst my fabric remnants and stitched a up a new cushion cover. The insert is made from reused cushion filling and an old sheet used to make the insert cover. At our place , nothing goes to waste. 
There are some picture books that I as a parent , can't bare to separate from as I have a great admiration for many book illustrators of which are too numerous to mention. I pull them out now and then from the book shelves as takes my whimsy. This particular book is one of my favorites - the art throughout is exquisite.
