Our popular Gull In Fair Isle print is now available as a cushion. Printed on cotton twill that has a soft handle and generously stuffed with a luxury bounce back micro fibre cushion pad. Measuring aproximately 38cm square, the cover has an envelope back and can be machine washed inside out on a cool setting and ironed on the reverse.
The design was inspired by a Herring Gull that hung around our garden from spring and through most of the summer. He was quite a character, digging up moss from the lawn during nest building and later dive bombing anyone brave enough to stroll up the garden. He would alarm call loudly, protecting his chicks who were nesting on a neighbour's roof, warning all the other gulls perched on the surrounding chimney pots of imminent human danger. He also appeared to take great delight in waiting until the washing on the line was almost dry before using it as target practice. I have to be honest I wasn’t sad to see him go.
