this cushion that I made years ago, and it is still one of my favourites.
I got the stitching done in about an hour and a half, so doable for a full days workshop. The middle has wadding and a backing so it's just like a mini quilt! The stitching did ruche up the middle quite a bit, but I gave it a good steam press and it flattened out.
We had a big delivery of Amy Butler and Anna Maria Horner fabrics in to the shop recently, and I have used all these glorious new designs on this cushion. We have been so busy with Christmas stuff that we haven't got them all listed on line yet! Though you can see most of the AMH Field Study here.
The mad Christmas retail period is also why you haven't had a post from me for over 2 weeks *blushing*.
All my classes are finished for the year so I have a whole weekend off starting tomorrow! And guess what I will be working on? Yes, it's another Dresden Plate cushion! This one's for a special project and I've already embroidered a middle circle. Here's a sneak peek below.
My 2013 craft class prospectus is now live and ready for booking. You can view all the classes up till Easter here. I will fill you in on some of the other new class projects very soon.
