A gift....


My lovely friend Michelle had a birthday last week.  Stuck at home as there has been virus nearby, but Mr Postie was very good to get her gift from me exactly on the right day!

This cushion pattern was a project provided in the Field Journal Club (the lovely little botanical prints that I have been embroidering)


Each of the houses was done in a different main colour

... using the Cottage Garden Threads which are very prettily variegated....


I love all the detail added to the houses....


I used some civil war fabric I had with colours that matched for the applique and back of the cushion


It is only a small cushion with the idea it would be a nice one for Michelle to rest her arms on whilst she is stitching......

.... but it a good football size too if she needs something to throw....

The patterns are sweet and I loved stitching them... 

Take care everyone, keep safe, keep stitching

Righto, Gotto Go..... food to cook.. one pot roast chicken and vegetables tonight
