Mother and daughter, navigating their way through life one quilt at a time!

What do you get when you mix some fairy fabric, some stitchery, some applique and some bejewelling?
You get a Princess cushion of course!
Yes, the mother who didn't want her daughter to be 'girly' at all has been making princess cushions for years! Such a guilty secret - but not anymore! They have been requested as birthday presents - even for a teenager!
It all started with a grandmother who bought lots of pink clothing, dolls and stories about Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty. Add in some sparkly nail polishes, twirly skirts and t-shirts with butterflies and fairies and there you go! Hello girly-girl, good bye tom boy! Oh well, if you cannot beat them, then join them! (Says she who agreed to have dragonflies put on her fingernails by the "girly girl" last time they did their nails together.)
