Here's the floss toss, including a plain peach fabric which will back the actual stitching and peep through the cutwork areas and a patterned piece that will be the cushion backing.
You might remember that I showed this scatter cushion cover last week and said I intended to cut the design down as I found it too busy for my simpler tastes. Well, here is the section I'm working:
And now photos of my progress so far taken one day apart - and showing how much time I've had for stitchery from Sunday to Tuesday of this week!!! I was quite amused to see how much positive attention a photo of the tiny central diamond attracted on my Instagram stream, ending up as my most 'liked' photo. It seemed strange when there was so little to see. =)
I'm now working on the final stages of the surface work - the cable stitch outlining and then some eyelets in the four 'outlying' squares.
What do you think? Like it? I'm loving the colours. I don't think I've ever really done a peach coloured piece before and it makes a lovely change. Peach was my high school best friend, Wendy's favourite colour. Coincidentally enough, whilst waiting for my doc's appointment (nothing serious, just a persistent sinus infection), I met up with another old schoolmate who I hadn't seen for 25 years. An 'old flame' in fact as we were an item for about a week!!! Fun that we still recognised each other. I've been 18 again in my mind and listening to tapes I made back in sixth form ever since. Need to wake up now, get on with the housework and be back to the present day...
