More Heart Cushions..
It's Tuesday already.. and I'm off to my sane patchwork group again today to work on the kaleidoscope quilt.
I do it every Tuesday, running late that is, I know I really should prepare things to take the night before, but I never do.
So I thought I would sneak in another two cushions quickly while I have the time.
This first one is quite lovely, worked on a damask fabric, and the ribbon , one of my favourites to use, is Bucilla called Purple Haze in 7mm.
There is that good old feather stitch again, with French knots at each tip.
I added a gold continuous bead trim to finish off the cushion.
Here will take you to a bigger picture.
This next hanging cushion is smaller and looks great hanging on a door knob.
This cushion is one of my very first pieces of CQ and it is made up in velvets and pinwale cord.
I had just started to hand paint the laces, so of course I just had to add lots of the laces and I finished this cushion off adding a lovely beaded tassel..
I'm off to get ready for Patchwork..
