Shabby Chic

When a swap for a Shabby Chic item was first announced my mind went blank.  What exactly was Shabby Chic?  After a wander around with Mr Google I decided I could enter this swap, and when after our partners were announced I visited my favourite fabric shop and noticed a selection of shabby chic fabrics.

A lovely stitchery by Jenny of Elefantz gave me the perfect centre for a cushion.  Somehow the idea of a chair in a cushion gave a moment of whimsy.  There was one serious downfall ... I so loved the completed cushion that it almost didn't get posted to Shez.  Today she received the Shabby Chic swap, which gives me every reason to make this post, including a photo of said item.
