Yo-yo cushion

yoyo suffolk puff cushion diagonalThere is something relaxing about arranging little pieces of fabric into a pleasing pattern. Over and over again. Different combinations give a different effect. I think I could easily lose hours arranging Suffolk Puffs (or yoyos, if you prefer). I have the same problem challenge with patchwork hexagons. I never know when to stop and get on with sewing them together.

yoyo suffolk puff cushion sideI’m not sure I would ever have finished this cushion unless there was a deadline. It’s true. Deadlines are the best friend of us procrastinators. Otherwise, there is too great a risk that everything would remain half finished forever.

Never mind. I still have a bag full of Suffolk Puffs. Lots of different colours and prints. Just waiting to be arranged. Don’t hold your breath waiting for another finished piece though. I fear, I’m lacking a deadline.
