this is a hardanger cushion, made over 10 years ago and never been used. It is now in my bedroom.
I found several cross stitch pictures, finished but unframed, this is just one of them.
When my son was tiny he loved parrots, he saw a tiny advert only an inch big in a magazine for a cushion kit. Well i couldn't get hold of the kit so I had to make the cushion just by copying from the 1 inch advert lol
Do you remember the Jean Greenhow clowns, I made loads of them for kids in the family. Then i designed a couple of my own, this footballer was for my son, done in the local team colours.
I also designed this pilot, he is called Nigel the Navigator. I made him for my stepfather who loves old planes. You can't see in the pic but he has a backpack on with a big white knitted parachute inside lol
This one is date and walnut.
Battenburg, yes it really is. i used a ton of pink foodcolouring in one of the cakes but when I got them out of the oven they were both the same colour, very bizzare lol i just couldn't figure out where the pink had gone.
mars bar cornflake cakes, always a winner.
I have also built a single bed in the craft room, and 5 bookcase units in the livingroom. Here are the 3 tall units. I am going to get the extension units to take them up to the ceiling.
