Mrs Siddons Tea Towel Cushion

This morning I made a cushion cover out of a secondhand tea towel I bought from a market. I just love how it sits on our sofa, resplendent in all its colourful glory.

The image on the tea towel is based on a painting by Thomas Gainsborough of Mrs Sarah Siddons, a Welsh actress of the 1700's.

The original painting :-)


  1. I love those rich colours too...they work really well together...

    ...really like the look of that lamp in the corner too Rel...lovely...

  2. Thanks Deb, I love that lamp too - it was given to me by my dance students when I "retired"!
