Stitching Complete

Hello my friends.
I am home for a short while, but leave again in the morning
to help my Mum now she is home from surgery for cancer
on her left wrist.
So time for a quick visit with me.
I have joined Chooky Blues SAL this year.
January is Anni Downs `Christmas Wishes`
I have completed the stitching and put the borders on as this is to be a cushion.

The colours I stitched with where:
Sampler Threads - Old Red Paint,
Cottage Garden Threads - Dandelion and High Country,
Aurifil - # 12 2260 and 
Weeks Dye Works - Blue Coat Red.

The peek a boo border shows off `High Country` thread.
Then the other borders bring it together.
When I come home I will attach the piping
and complete my cushion.

Once home I will finish my cushion and show how it came out.
Happy Stitching,


  1. You are off to a good start on Chooky blues SAL. This cushion will be so pretty! Prayers for your mom's complete recovery!

  2. Great start to the SAL. It will be wonderful as a cushion too.
    Good luck helping your mum too...hope all is well there. xox

  3. hope your Mum is going well............

  4. Ah I found the peek a boo border. Yes it looks quite good. Sets off the center. Will try that with the dark brown I think. Your stitching is beautiful. Hope your birthday was lovely.
