Cushion is done and 'Welcome all seasons' is started.

So, the embroidery on the cushion or pillow cover (depending on which side of the Atlantic you speak!!!!!!) is done and it's just waiting now to be made up into a cushion proper. Might buy the fabric today, but I'm not sure that Saturday afternoon is the best time for it!!!! Perhaps next week sometime will do just as well.

I've already sorted out the next 5 projects, (yes - FIVE), got them 'kitted up', fabric pressed etc. Two are already in the working frames, but only one started. Here it is, Lizzie*Kate's 'Welcome all seasons'. I've been meaning to stitch this up as a little 'welcome' sign for outside our home for ages, so I've now started it! I'm going to insert 'in' in the wording so it makes more sense and I want a bright yellow flower on it too!!

The other things are another hardanger cushion cover which will be my kid bro's wedding pressie, (not until April, but may as well get on with it now anyway), a small ribbon embroidery kit which I'll make into a card for my mum, (that's the other one in a hoop so far), a Helen M Stevens' floral 'poppies and mallow' piece from her 'Embroidered Flowers' book and a something something for Sir, whose not to know what it is until he gets it complete, so there'll be no WIP photos there! It's tiny anyway, so wouldn't be worth it!!!! Curious? Well, you'll have to wait and see......

I can't believe you kitted up 5 more - you go girl!
I hope to get some stitching in today too - we shall see - depends if my hands want to cooperate.
