Scrappy colour bursts

I hope this qualifies as being cosy and comforting enough to be part of ThriftyHousehold and Silverpebble's Making Winter series!

I don't know about where you are, but here it is grey and soggy and VERY January. Bleurgh.

So when I saw some brightly coloured scrap cushions on AmandaJean's blog, I could do nothing else until I had made them for my girls. Ignore all the other things I have on the go and the parcels I STILL haven't posted (sorry ladies!), I actually managed to start and finish a project in one afternoon. Wheeee!

 I am faintly ashamed that I didn't need to buy anything at all to complete this - please tell me I'm not the only one who has unused cushion pads kicking around - but then that means I'm stash busting, which is a Good Thing. Right?

And lest you should think I live in a twinkly, colourful, fairy lit interiors magazine home, here's the reality only 2 feet away.
