Yule Time Annies
Finished this Yule Time Annies cushion this morning. It has been waiting to be stuffed and sewn up for quite a while. This very cute stitchery was designed by local designer Lesley Hiller from Wash House Cats. I have made a few of her designs.
The pattern was in Handmade Vol 12 No 6. It was pictured as a wallhanging but I choose to finish it as a cushion. I love quilts with praire point borders so decided to try them out. I was quite happy with my first attempt.
I do quite a lot of stitchery projects and here is my 'very elaborate' light box.
It works really well. I have tried a variey of other methods - window, TV on an untuned channel, lamp in a washing machine! - but my torch in a box topped by an empty frame is the best.
Here is an aerial shot with Olly being cute!
