Another Finish..Crinoline Cushion

I'm working on some finishes for March...while at the same time doing the little Klosjes..
This little embroidery started out to be a runner, but I changed my mind and made it up into a cushion....I think it made up quite lovely and I have just the person who I think might like names!
The lovely fuchsia beaded cushion next to my Crinoline cushion came from Brazil...look at all those little folded tucks caught up with tiny beads...matches and goes beautifully next to my cushion...
This will make it two posts in one day...thought I'd get ahead a to Patchwork tomorrow, then a sad afternoon, a Dear friend passed away..
Until next time...♥


  1. Love both the cushions Julia. How clever is that pleated one? Also loving your little spools. What size are yours? are they as tiny as Valentina's 2 1/4"? They look like a lot of fun.

  2. Hi Julia, I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

    I love the Crinoline lady made into the cushion. The cushion from Brazil is really unique and pretty too.

    Have a lovely time at the Patchwork group.

  3. I am so sorry you lost a close friend! I hope your afternoon goes ok.

    Your pillow is wonderful and amazing. I love the needlework and I really like the girl with a umbrella. I am always fascinated with that style of dress.

    Gorgeous job!!!! Thanks for sharing:)

  8. Your Crinoline Lady pillow turned out very pretty. And the beaded cushion is so elegant looking!

  9. The cushion looks lovely a good project for a sweet lady. Gorgeous stitching. Loving you spools too, I think I really like the scrappy look where you get to play with lots of colours. Thanks for sharing

  10. Thank you for stopping by my blog and for the good wishes for my hubby.
    I love your crinoline lady cushion. I remember a set my grandmother had made for me with a similar lady on a pillowcase and the dresser scarf. Unfortunately, these and many other heirlooms have been lost in a house fire (but thanks be to heaven, no people or pets!).
