Yippa-doooo!

YAY! The water violets and fish are finally done and finished up into a nice scatter cushion:


I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever see the end of this one, but I suppose it might help if I were get on with stuff faster....

The piping (which was the main reason I put doing this one off) is made from the ribbon that came on a box of chocolates, folded in half and 'trapped' between the front and back layers of fabric!!

Your fish turned out just beautifully! Nice and scale-y and fin-ny and friendly :-) (except to his dinner, I guess)

Beautiful! Doesn't it feel so nice to get something done? Now what will you start?

It is very beautiful. I like how you have offset the design.

Turned out really well, didn't it - and I love your creative re-use of chocolate box ribbon!

Lovely work and well done on completing it too. I like the recycling tip, (and the idea of eating all the chocs, but that's probably not what you're supposed to do).

The finished cushion is lovely and the design very elegant with an almost Japanese woodcut feel to it.

It looks great :) Sorry for the delayed response, by the way, but I'm still catching up after almost a month out of the country!
