A new Cushion–and rain

Another UFO reached the finishing line yesterday.  The corners of this cushion were decorated using the heirloom stitches on my sewing machine, some with twin and  wing needle.They were part of a class at Sewing Club some time ago.

  I couldnt remember how the cushion was meant to be made so decided to make my own design for it.  I love this centre fabric, and it was just perfect for having the heirloom corners added.

We had such a deluge of rain yesterday afternoon, turning this

Into this in a matter of 15 –20 minutes of rain.  On the right hand side the water is more than 15 cm (6 inches) deep.

Yes, we in Germany know about your heavy rains, really awful for some regions. But you can cope with your "swimming pool" I think. The cushion is very beautiful.
