Hatched & Patched Swap

Our online sewing group had a Hatched & Patched swap and I was to make for the lovely Jane! I decided to make the 'Love of a Family Cushion' and the 'Home Framed Picture' from the Family Values book. Here is the cushion. Made using Whimsy fabrics:
'The Love Of A Family Goes Round And Round And Round' is the stitched verse:


The fabrics used in the frame is also Whimsy. I had a white frame ready to go, but it just did not look right as the stitchery was done in cream! The only colour that I thought matched was the brown.....


Here is a close up of my stitching and needleturn:








Glad you liked them Jane! I have the home stitchery done ready to put together for myself!


I will be back tomorrow to share with you all the most wonderful gift my lovely friend Christine made for me!
