A Bit of Fun

Cushion Sequel (see recent post Neutral Dilemma)


All this talk of cushions!!  It suddenly brought to mind, today, something from years ago I felt compelled to share.

I crafted a patchwork cushion

many years ago;

I made it pure and simply

just to put on show.

I wonder can you guess the scheme?

You probably can;

it was ————- and ————!



The beautiful floral cushion I purchased has now, seemingly of its own accord, multiplied; there are now four (I couldn’t resist!!!)  An explosion of colour to ward off dark, wintry days.  As for Brown and Cream – consigned, not to the bin, but to the just in case box!

    ‘An explosion of colour’ sounds full of joy! Could be the title of a poem…?

    This is a lovely poem. And I’m intrigued by the red cardigan. Perhaps it could be incorporated into a poem under the ‘Explosion of colour’ title!

    Thank you BH,

    I think you may have just scattered a seed in my poetic soil!!! LOL:)

    The red cardigan is my brave endeavour to carry the colour theme through into clothing! 🙂

    A garden of cushions! At least, they’re in full bloom all year round, even through fall and winter. 😀

    🙂 *lol* I really like the blanks to fill in the end of your poem. 🙂 Thank you for a lovely giggle.
    I think it’s fabulous you’ve caught the colour bug! 🙂 I hope your new cushions bring you much cheer through the cold and grey of winter.

    (((BIG HUGS)))

    “An explosion of colour to ward off dark, wintry days. As for Brown and Cream – consigned, not to the bin, but to the just in case box!” Hooray!! LOVE this! How about that red cardigan? I can’t wait to read a post about it. (I have been a brown & cream girl with phases of black for much of my life…. I started to brighten things up by adding colorful scarves to my wardrobe! So fun!) 🙂 Here’s to a bright & colorful 2012! Peace & hugs, Angela

    Hi AngelaMarie,

    This is a lovely cheery comment – thank you!

    I seem to remember loving colour years ago when the children were little but I experienced some dark times in life later on and became very subdued. Without realising it I have just hung on to the “blank” colours but not any more!! (There will be a poem re the red cardigan shortly!!). LOL 🙂
