and Iran*

Further to yesterday’s post – I also made this giant floor cushion on the weekend.

Fraser and I travelled to Turkey in our 20s, and while there I bought some textiles made in Iran. This was a fringed tablecloth, but somehow I never felt right using it as a tablecloth. It seemed too beautiful to drop food all over.

So I decided to make it into a floor cushion. I recently changed the boy’s duvets from polyester ones to down ones, so I recycled one of the old duvet inners for the filling of the cushion, and like yesterday’s cushion, I used grey wool army blanket for the bottom.

In this photograph, the cushion is sitting on the rug we also bought in Turkey – it’s been the centrepiece of every living room we’ve had since and I still love it:
