My another UFO has been finished this week! It'a sort of a retro style cross stitched hanging decoration for home decor. It had been waiting for months for its moment as I couldn't somehow get round to finish it. Now, it's ready for the presentation :)
Believe it or not, it takes quite a while to stitch this 12 x 12 cm cute cushion. Simple as it may seem, this project involves frequent changing colours of the threads (flowers mostly) as well as a great deal of backstitching and outlining every single element of it. I used a checked fabric as backing and a gingham ribbon in coordinated colours. Lazy daisy stitch has been used additionally over the cross stitch to define its retro look.
This week has been an "Ufo week" for me. I spent hours finishing off my outstanding projects as I'm very keen to move onto the next fresh designs. Check my previous post to see the other UFO in a form of an ipod case that has landed at my place :) and I also couldn't resist the temptation to start stitching my Nordic cross stitch cards for Christmas. You know that well, a stitch in time... and you end up with a lovely collection of Christmas cards ready to be sent away to your family and friends.
Moreover, it's time for Handmande Monday, which I'm linking up tonight. Get clicking guys and check Wendy's blog for some other lovely crafty creations :) Well worth seeing! Take care. x x x
