Shadow Work Cushion..

I don't think I've posted this cushion before...

I made it for a DMC thread competition quite a while ago now...we had to design something with twin hearts. It didn't win any prizes, but I enjoyed making it.
The pink ribbon and bows are done in shadow work on very fine organza fabric, so that the thread shows through from the is worked from the top, back stitching along and crossing over with the thread from top to bottom of the design at the back ...very soft and delicate..
The hearts are worked in feather stitch with bullion stitch roses, and bullion stitch lavender...

Still deciding what background to use for the Dresden plates...
We have family coming for lunch today...must go and prepare..

Have a lovely day /evening....♥

  7. Ohhh, wow. Gosh I love that. You know, it looks so relaxing to do in the evening or when resting. Parts of it I mean. I imagine other aspects of this creation take real time and tenderness ~ meaning "exactness" and "fine workmanship."

  8. This is an absolutely lovely delicate heart pillow, Julia! I love the softness of it. And the pastels have captured my heart!

    I'm so glad you visited! I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while but I'm getting reorganized with my blogs (merging my two so I'll have more time to visit). You'll find many more quilting posts on my Vintage Home Blog now that I'm moving those over from Charms of Days! (The move in still in process but it's going well!)

  9. You should have won a prize! I was going to ask what background you choose, but you answered that question!
