Back in the saddle!

Yesterday afternoon I made up a cushion cover using the Kokeshi doll embroideries.  I added Kona pink and Charcoal and then quilted some wonky wavy lines in pink Aurifil.  It made quite a funky little cushion.  I made an envelope back using bright pink Robert Kaufmann Metro Circles.

I really want to keep it!  Which is strange as it doesn't match anything in my house and it is quite a girly girly cushion.  It's a couple of weeks till my nieces birthday, I might just buy her some Littlest Pet shop stuff instead ;-).

Today I have an afternoon free to sew as the kidlet is in Nursery.  I just have to decide what to do off the mighty list I seem to have accrued!

  20. Where can I purchase the embroidery pattern? My daughter is majoring in Asian Pacific studies and minoring in Japanese. The design would be a great gift for her.
