This is just a quick one to keep my Handmade treasures series going. A glimpse of this item could already be seen in my previous post of this series so I thought I could as well let you have a closer look.
This lovely retro style cross stitch cushion is made using thick wool yarn. The close-up shows the yarn is so chunky the cross is most of the time almost invisible. Thanks to the pattern of stylized daisies and the delightful colours it would have been absolutely impossible for me not to salvage this charming cushion when I spotted it at a flea market a couple of years ago. Now I can admire it every day on the bed in the alcove of my upstairs ‘studio’.
