This weekend I finished a few cushions, some are to keep and some to give as present.
The lion and zebra ones are a gift for a dear friend in Guildford. My friend Mary had lived in Uganda a long while and I thought this would be a reminder of her African period. With these ones I was able to sew the contour of the lion and zebra designs, and the framed edges, it was a new technique that I am not quite sure how you call it, but I enjoyed doing it. Others like these will most likely follow, I have bought a few printed materials for Christmas, and hope to do it shortly. Can you call this patchwork? Or applique? Not sure. Even if you click on the image it does not quite show, but when you look at it, the lion and the zebra stand out a bit like a 3D image. Fun to do, in any case.
I have finally finished my matching knitted cushions for the living room.
And a small crochet one while I am learning the ripple!
May I also show you the end result for Baby's igloo, the mini blanket fits perfectly.
He seems to be comfortable in it and appreciate, so mission accomplished!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,
