Xmas gift for a dear friend!

The last couple of weeks before Christmas, I got stitching this cushion during my lunch breaks at work! The girls from work loved seeing it progress as they are not stitchers at all! I must show them the completed cushion when we go back!

I made this as a little surprise gift for Pauline! She has helped me with lots of things during the year and so I wanted to show her that I appreciated her help VERY much!

Pauline has a country craft and patchwork shop and it is one of my favourite places to visit! So, I stitched her shop name on the little shop applique:


I actually finished it 2 days before Christmas as I wanted to put the Hugo button on instead of the cat button, and it only came on the Thursday. Talk about a close call!
I am glad you liked it Pauline!
I still have HEAPS to show you, but today has been spent stitching so tomorrow I will (WILL) pop back!
