I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
Henry David Thoreau
Well, to be honest, I am not sure that I totally agree with Thoreau on this one, although I am a fan. He certainly made his point clear - he yearned to be alone in nature and didn't care for the company of many of his contemporaries or for the luxuries that life afforded in those days. But how about linen cushions? These super sized ones were commissioned by dear friends of mine for their apartment in St. Kilda.
When I am not busy sewing down at our island retreat, I love spending time in my organic edible garden or in the kitchen.
