Nursery cushion

The nursery cushion is now finished and all orders done. This cushion was interesting to make as it differed from my usual flower patterns. The animals made a nice change and I was pleased with the finished cushion, I think it will look nice in a nursery.

for the cow I used chain stitch

I used loop stitch for the sheep

knitted cushion with embroidered Iris

Hello friends,
The Iris cushion is now finished, the lady who bought it for her daughter was delighted.
The flowers were embroidered with double knit wool, I have added pearl beads and gold thread which aren't showing up on the picture.
When I showed the lady the drawing of the design that I was going to put on her cushion she asked me if I could do some sort of drawing of it and put it in a frame to go along with the cushion. At first I had the idea to paint an Iris but then I had a brain wave and thought why not use the same design as the cushion, this is what I made for her, she was thrilled.

We have got a little charity project going at the knitting club, we are now knitting things for orphan babies in Bulgaria, this little hat was my contribution.

Knitted socks, card and new cushion project

Hello friends,
I have now mastered the art of the knitted sock, they weren't as hard as I thought they were going to be and they do actually fit my feet. I plan now to make some nice thick ones for winter.
I have got two more orders for cushions, this is a little look at the first one

There will be four blocks each with the same design, all the stems radiating out from the centre with a blue button in the middle. the second cushion is based on farm animals which is only in the planning stage at the moment.

I thought that you all would like to see my latest handbag card that I have made for my friend Pam, I have had this idea in my head for ages and I am very pleased with how it turned out.
