All stitched and ready for finishing!

Yippee! Got the stitching completed. Actually, I got it done in a little over 3 hours in total on Saturday, but just took a photo this afternoon. I've had a foul headache since Saturday evening and it's just relenting now. Should be OK tomorrow.=)

What you can see through the cutwork is our living room carpet, although the backing, (which is pinned in place so far) is about the same colour. As you can see from the adjustments I made to this picture, the fabric is really cream, so neither pink nor white! LOL!!

Nothing much else to report for now. Should be able to post the sewn up cushion photo later this week, but think I'll have to go to mum's to get a photo as it's actually somewhat larger than our cushions, but she has some that should do to model with.

Gorgeous, Elisabeth. Just gorgeous! I love looking at your stitching. I've still yet to find the courage to try hardanger... fear of cutting the wrong threads is holding me back >.<
