From my experience I know that usually artisans do not have enough time (or energy) to make something for themselves. Just for fun. But New Year is a special holiday. Cozy, warm and homely. And so this time why not to treat yourself a little and make, for example, a beautiful cushion? :) And you can kill two birds with one stone — decorate the house and please yourself.
Just imagine: a beautiful Christmas tree, next to a chair (a rocking chair), and on the chair there is a wonderful cushion, pleasing the eye and warming the heart..
I have many ideas of cushions, a variety of them. There are fast designs that can be made in one evening, and there are also ideas for a long meditative work.
I wish you all inspiration and pleasant anticipation of the holiday!
