A small embroidered cushion

Another embroidered cushion. I done this one a couple years ago when my friend Kay wanted to do something different than quilting ,cross stitch, knitting. She wanted to do embroidery,maybe needlepoint ,and could I worked with her on these. The firs thing she done was a needlepoint with a little bit of help,it did not take long before she could do it on her own. Then we decided to do an wool embroidery cushion. The design was not too hard,and turn out very nice.

mini quilt

This is a mini quilt I done few years ago. I done it for my doll. I have done two more mini ones. It is as much work as a medium size one. All the cutting and putting it together takes time and when finished looks very nice.

Another cushion

I had done this embroidery a couple years ago. Unfortunetly I put it away with some other things and could not find it. In the last few days ,when Heather was here we were looking at some material I have( a lot) and behold there was my embroidery among some of the self color fabric. Was I glad to find it. So yesterday I sewed it together and put it in a pillow form and (voila) another finished cushion with my initial again. I used silk embroidery thread for the flowers and metallic thread for my initial in my favorite color purple. It turned out very nifty I think.

This quilt was done years ago. It is a lap quilt to use when taking a nap on the sofa for fifteen minutes. I was told years ago one should take a nap after lunch by my aunt which she did herself faithfully, specially when one gets up early in the morning. It suppose to help with the rest of the day. I have been looking at some of the small ones I have done and will post more.

painting of window

This is a painting that I have done few years ago when I tooked a workshop here in Flin Flon. We had to do a still life and I choose to do a window. I saw a picture similar to this and as I am not fond to do fruits I opted for this.
