I have joined up with Cheryll and her Sewing Phd's http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com.au 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!!!!)
