Long overdue – my new cushion cover “Two Black Cats”

I know, I know! I haven’t been here for a while. But I was so busy, first going away, then entertaining friends on their visit to England and lots of other things.

But I managed to make a new cushion cover! Here it is, “Two Black Cats”.

It required a lot of work, with every detail painstakingly sewn by hand, all the embroidery – silver thread for noses and mouths, bronze-coloured for whiskers, brown and green for the twisting vines. But the most difficult part was embroidering the cat’s eyes, I did and re-did it so many times until I was happy with the result!
