The Lovers, The Dreamers ...

And me.

Kermit Cushion

The Rainbow Connection would have to be one of my very favourite songs. It has been for almost as long as I can remember. I think perhaps it appeals to the dreamer in me, it certainly transports me back to my childhood & a simpler time.

Not by coincidence, this is the song I sing to Willow every night at bedtime. Once it's lights out, I sing it start to finish & kiss her goodnight. I guess one day, this song will remind her of a simpler time too.

When I decided to make a cushion for Willow, my little dreamer, a little quote from kermit seamed apt.

Cushion.

Felt.

Tutorial.

Go & listen to Kermit play his banjo in the swamp & try not to get nostalgic.

This is lovely Christie, not sure I want to thank you for the felt link though, I can see some money being spent in that shop!

So very pretty! Poppy is dancing to that song for her ballet this week. Might need to borrow your idea and make her one to remember!
