Last Weeks Stitching

Last week I made a start on an animal cushion for Little L.

 She has been asking me to make her one ever since my mum came home with this booklet which she found on a trip to Scotland last Summer. The motifs are mainly of animals with a few of flowers and aeroplanes.

All the transfers are intact and as it has survived this long (published in 1974) without anyone taking scissors to it, I traced out the designs.

This is as far as I have got with the cushion as I don't have a cushion pad yet and I think I'll wait until the weather picks up to go shopping for one.

I also had a lovely parcel pop through my letterbox last week. I found out a few weeks ago that I had won a competition that was hosted on the Cut Out And Keep site and the prize were these packs of embroidery thread from Sublime Stitching. I'd forgotten all about it and thought that maybe I'd had an online shopping spree that had slipped my mind so I was delighted when I opened the parcel and saw these. They will certainly come in handy here and I can't wait to try them out.
