Happy Mother's Day

I have just got off the phone to Mum, she has received our gift so I can now share here what I made for her :+)

Mum told me AGES ago she wanted the Northern Solitude cushions..... I WAS going to make them for her for her Birthday, but never got around to it, so decided to make them for Xmas, but never did! So, Mother's Day it was! I only just finished them last Tuesday and posted them off on Wednesday.

Here is one, the Kookaburra (taken without the flash for some reason!!):

And, the butterfly (that's a better pic!):


Here is a close up of the border with my needle-turned leaves...... Love that effect!


I posted them to Kate, as she got some cushion inserts for me (thanks Kate xx). The cushions are HUGE! And the funny things is, Mum totally forgot about these cushions!
I got the pattern from this book..... BEAUTIFUL book, full of great projects!
Happy Mother's Day Mum!
I hope you have had a wonderful day
Love Sarah & Dennis (and Sophie) xxx
