Just Sneaking This One In.....

I have joined up with Cheryll and her Sewing Phd's and here is my first Phd - just sneaking this in on the 5th of the month at 10.52pm!!!
I started this cushion about 12 years ago (could be longer...) and I actually finished the embroidery.
So out it came this afternoon and I found the just right fabric for the borders
 (courtesy of a good crafty friend)!!!

Why I didn't have anything suitable in my own extensive stash I will never know!!!
I am sure most of you sewing ladies will have seen this kit before - it is meant to have a pleated frill around it but I am not a frill person thus the coloured border.

Over the next few days I plan on finishing this cushion - that is when I decide whether or not I am going to put the pleated frill around it or just go with the green border.
I am becoming quite smug and pleased with myself - between the Sewing PhD's and OPAM 2013 I am starting to get a nice little pile of completed UFO's (or should I say CFI's - Completely Finished Items or FIIF - Finally It Is Finished!!!!) 


  1. Good to see that your lovely embroidery will no longer be hidden in the cupboard. Great border choice. Thanks for the information about Tracey North.

  2. It's beautiful! I'm thinking about making some of my cross stitch UFOs into pillows or frame them with fabric for wall hangings.

  3. Way to go Kerrie... that's great! We can shrink our PhD list with encouragement! :)

  4. Your cushion is gorgeous, love the embroidery and the green border is perfect! Wendy


I would love to hear your comments!!
