Well I did get quite a bit of stitching done today - MIL and FIL's Christmas cushions are well underway - okay the centres are done. I mentioned before about using the striped fabric for the bias tubing. I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out. It does make it a little more difficult to see the unders and overs but you can tell if you look closely. I shall put a 1/4" strip in the infill green round these and then a two inch border in the yellow space dyed fabric.
The furnishings in their conservatory are in a pale buttery yellow so they should go quite well.
I'm going to do a couple of cushions for my brother and SIL next in natural neutrals. Same format, same celtic knotwork but possibly piecing the background as I have a whole bunch of FQ's in the same shade of stone with a different cream pattern on each. The pattern is a bit too pronounced on the front but will work well using the reverse side of the fabric - I often prefer the reverse of fabrics and use them often - in fact the green infills on the photos here use the back of some Sprayway I had which wasn't subtle enough for this project.
Wonder if little girlie will be well enough to go back to school tomorrow - who knows I might get some more bonus stitching time - really need to go to work and clear the pile on my desk - but we'll see what the morning brings.
