It’s Happy Birthday today to my daughter Nicky. I had stitched this cushion for her and handed the parcel over to be opened on her birthday, when we were visiting a couple of weeks ago.
When I saw this cushion design (Country Patchwork and Craft magazine, Vol 7 No 3), thought it would be perfect for my daughter Nicky. She has been working at the Herb Farm in the Manawatu for several years, which manufactures 100% natural skincare and healthcare products. The company web-site says: “Nicky is our resident 'super-woman' and has worked in various areas of the business including accounts, labelling and now she heads our manufacturing department.”
This was a “travelling project” and most of the stitching was completed during our three month South Island Odyssey caravan trip. It is worked in Perle No 5 cottons, and I completed the cushion using a dark green fabric with a tiny white spot. I just hope she likes it.
