So cute

The last couple of weeks I have been working on a quite large quilt.  I could have pushed myself and finished it except for hand sewing, by today, but I needed to take a break and do something a bit different.

A friend of mine who does the most beautiful (make that perfect) work, taught a group of us to do painting on fabric, using folk art paints or watercolour pencils and fabric medium.  This is the picture she prepared for us, and I then painted the girls using paints. It is dated 2004.
I have mostly boy Grandies (love all those young boys), but I now have a girl Grandie who I can make things for, so I decided to make her a cushion using the painted picture.
 Some pretty trim which is a bit like lots of little tassels for her to touch, as she loves to do, and some striped piping to finish it off.  Some lovely "affirmative words" fabric worked perfectly.

I will see Vicki in about 3 weeks time so can give it to her then.

I feel like writing in caps to signify squealing, but it looks a little rude, but I want to squeal "how cuuuute!" It's adorable, Vicki will love it! (Her mum will too, just quietly...)

What an enchanting cushion, I'm sure Vikki will love it, especially made with love from grandma.
