"In My Heart.....Mother" Cushion

Here is that something special I made my Mum for her birthday last week. I brought this pattern whilst once again shopping at DewDropIn at Hervey Bay. I could spend all day there looking at the collections of fabric. These patterns from "Sally Giblin" are absolutely beautiful. I brought about 4 of her patterns that day, could not decide which one I liked the most. As I say when in doubt buy them anyway.... The fabric is "Vintage Rose". I stumbled across it in my stash while trying to find something else.

This is my first stitchery cushion project. I enjoy making these more then quilting these days. I find it more rewarding on a personal level. After finishing the cushion, I really wanted to keep it for myself. Might just have to make

My Mum totally loved it. It's the first thing I have made her since I was about 9yrs old. She said to me that I have set a birthday standards now...she expects something like this every year. I was happy that she loved it as much as me.

So... I guess it's make to the sewing room... I've started making this beautiful Butterfly and Blossoms Doily Kit that Sarah gave me for Christmas. Fingers cross it turns out as good as
