Hardanger Cushion completed!

Not having a reliable computer connection all week forced me into doing other things and amongst achieving to cross of stuff on my to do list, I also managed to complete this cushion cover I'm making for my lounge chair.  The lounge chair is floral in pastels so I selected the pastel perle cottons I had in my stash and started stitching.

I didn't use a pattern, just made up a grid and tried a few things out.  I'm really pleased with the end result and now I just have to find someone to make it up for me.  I've started on another for the same lounge suite, but this one will be in dusky pinks and greens.  I'll show you it when it's finished too!

Today we had our fortnightly meeting of the Sisters of Stitch, and one of our lovely ladies Robyn, bought along a couple of cuties for us to see.  These little twins were made in porcelaine by Robyn, with all the painting of the faces etc by Robyn and Robyn also designed and made the little outfits (including the toy rabbit) using very fine cotton and beads.  I just love these delightfuls, and thought you might like to see them too.

The following link will take you to Robyns website for more pictures of her wonderful creations.

Here's Robyns webpage if you'd like to see more

Robyn is just one of the crafters from the Sisters of Stitch who quietly go about their crafting.  I'm sure you'll agree she is one talented lady!
