I’ve been quietly stitching away on my cushion panel for some time, and at last the stitchery was completed. An afternoon or two at the sewing machine, and I’d completed the cushion cover. Or had I? No – I decided I hadn’t made the cover firm enough, so it had to be unpicked and re-stitched a little smaller. Can’t have a saggy cushion now, can we? There – that’s much better. I made it especially to sit on the couch in my sewing room.
If this cushion looks familiar, it is because I stitched another one last year and sent it off to South Dakota as a Christmas gift for my penfriend Carol. I enjoyed doing it so much, I decided that I wanted to make one for myself too. The pattern is by Kim Goodrich of “Once Upon a Vine”.
Lucy the rabbit also sits on the couch. She was a lovely hand-made gift from Lucy who used to live in Hawaii – sadly Lucy moved away to the main-land and I lost touch with her. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if she just happened to be reading this blog?
