Im back and here's my House Cushion ...

All computer issues are finally sorted. This afternoon I picked up the laptop and now Im having to reload different things and work my way around it all again..

The good news is I havnt lost a single photo!! and the guy told me I had to think about getting an external hardrive because of all the photos I have taken!! LOL  I will blame that on being a blogger...

Anyway... Here is one of my latest creations...

I didnt have a pattern for this. I saw a photo of something that Tilda has done... but it is smaller and flatter. I created this with being a doorstop in mind, but I changed my mind about that. It is a cushion. I have used Tilda plywood buttons, that Brit sent me (my swap partner from Norway) and I have added some handstitchery. I decided to enhance the cushion with a chain stitch around the applique.. not the conventional way, I know, but I dont always do conventional... I didnt want the buttonhole look so decided to do something abit different. The gingham fabric I found a couple of weeks ago for this very project..... this is all the beginning of my Tilda bedroom do up...


French Knots that create the climbing rose look

Tilda buttons and the front door

I have been thinking lately about what my forte' is with crafting. I have to say that stitching is one thing that I have been doing since I was about 10years old and is my forte'.  I have decided to give you more of an idea of  my forte' for the rest of the year..... so I am hoping to make and create things that are what I do best. I havnt really posted alot of my BEST. So keep an eye out for ribbon embroidery, stitchery and some pretty things that I have in mind... I created some roses made out of Sculpey today... When they are dry I will add them to one of my creations and show you...

Thanks Bunny and Helena for emailing me... Im still waiting to hear from Katie Q...

Take care

Hi Lisa, I just came across your blog and it is just delightful. Stitching is my passion too and what I do best. Love your version of the house pillow...I also make those but haven't done one for awhile....your photo has me thinking...must do that again! That's what I love about blogging..inspiration.
Kind Regards
