More early bird Christmas goodies.

I have finished a pair of cushion covers for this month's challenge.  I have used some lace that belonged to my mother, combined with pintucks, some machine embroidery stitching and piping to create them.  Because I didnt have enough fabric, I have used a cream with outlined pink flowers for the back of the cushions.  They are ready for putting in the box until closer to Christmas, when I will put in the cushion insert.

Today I am making a pincushion, among other things (as the mood takes me).  Tonight I will have to do some more of my landscape.  I am trying to do at least an hour each day on it this week, until our next lesson on Saturday.

Beautiful work Marilyn. I had forgotten how nice pin tucks can look. Well done!
Kind Regards

These are gorgeous. I remember some cushions my Nan made with pintucks and lace inserted into them and I just loved them. Yours are so pretty. They will make a great Christmas present!

I think your cushion covers are so pretty, I'm sure whoever receives them will be extremely pleased. Congratulations on winning the lucky dip, I wonder what lovely goodies you will find in your bag.
