Tropical winds, the colours may not be vibrant enough to convey a feel of the tropics after a storm.

Tropical Winds back

I was lucky, and won a set of Christopher Nejmans designs in a competition I combined some designs and used for the back of this pillow.

Tropical Winds

Tropical Winds is a pillow I am finding difficult to master. There is another one on the sewing machine just now. Here is one of my earlier attempts.

Under the sea

Based on the Harem of Colour pillow found in Christopher Nejman's book, I made this cushion in blues and turquoises, the colours remind me of the Great Barrier reef, where the warm waters, corals and tropical fish are a myriad of colour and textures.

Harem of Colour Pillow

Harem of Colour

Think of the colours you would find in a Harem, beautiful women in beautifully exotic clothes, rich, bright colours abound, there is the sparkle of jewels and of gold.
Visions of colour, texture and fun.
