A UFO No Longer

I stitched this lovely whimsical girl a few months ago.
It was to be used as part of a folder
cover to commemorate the naming ceremony for my Great Niece.
It was done onto a vintage linen napkin with her name 
at the side.  The Pattern is one by Lilipopo
who does some really pretty bits.
  When it came to actually
making the cover I decided that it didn't really suit
so made it with just her name cross-stitched on the front.

That of course meant I had this just hanging around 
waiting for me to make something out of it,
 as, lets face it,  it was a waste not to use it.

So finally this week I have made it into a cushion
to take down with me next time I go West.

I have to say I'm really pleased with it,
 I hope her Mum and Dad feel the same.

Have a good day.



  1. good morning, I really love this! Your fabric choices for the cushion are perfect too.

  2. I love it too and it's made a very special cushion for Elsa. Those fabrics are beautiful Gill.
    I would love to see her journal cover too!

  3. As you should be! It's really beautiful.

  4. How pretty, without being what I call ''pretty, pretty' '' something she can treasure for all her life. I Love it

  5. I think it's perfect - they will absolutely love and cherish it! Happy Sunday - Tanya
