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.
