Pillow of society

While Kitty was here she encouraged me to take up the fine four-for-$30 cushions deal at Dog's Breakfast on Johnson St in Fitzroy (note: four cushions are not easy for one person to carry. Second note: even with two people carrying said cushions, it is not advised to go into narrow shops selling cones of overlocking thread - cushions have corners, y'know).

Anyway, this means that I can finally use the stash-o-barkcloth I bought at least a year ago in Cushion Anticipation:

Here is the first one - I like to call him Mr Plumpy (that is also the cat's winter name, but I'm sure he won't mind).

Note to self: take pictures of cushions the right way up. I tried to rotate the picture, but it just looks odd...

Edited to add: Here is the whole Plumpy family. I do like furnishings, so dashed quick to sew!

was it really only yesterday we were running through Fitzroy with cushions and 10 metres of double knit?
Those cushions will be fabulous on the couch.

You know, the two times I have been into that overlocking thread shop of which you speak, I have been carrying large unwieldy bag of shopping that knocked things off shelves, thus visibly annoying keeper of same shop. Whoops.
