French stitchery cushion

I started this French stitchery a long time ago. The stitchery itself didn't take that long it was just me trying to figure out how to make it into a cushion (yes, you would think that would be the easy part).

I purchased this stitchery from here. I just love her work. I really would love the Edwardian house but that will have to be when I win Tattslotto.

I find the stitcheries a little difficult to trace as I have to stick the pattern and the fabric up on a window and its rather awkward. Your arm starts to ache after a while. A lightbox would be fantastic - but perhaps Tattslotto again (they are really hard to get on ebay too).

I just adore these little tulips. As you can see, the stitchery is mainly stitched in backsttich, with a little satin stitch and a couple of french knots. I have stuck to the thread colours provided in the pattern but would be great to see another variation.

Some of the fabric I won from the lovely Val's blog.  I knew I could put it to good use.

This cushion is for my mum as it was her birthday a couple of weeks ago. I hope she likes it.

Happy Stitching,
Susie xo
