Sneaking In A Garden Themed Cross Stitch Cushion Make


Crochet blankets have been taking over a bit recently so I haven’t had much time to work on my other projects, I finally managed to squeeze in a week of cross stitching and have managed to get this cushion finished and ready for gifting. 


I love this cross stitch pattern from 365 Cross Stitch Designs, volume 5 2016 and think it’s worked out really well on the green background I was wanting to use. The fabric is some I had in my stash from Ikea. I’ve got my eye on a few more cross stitch patterns from this issue too so it hopefully won’t be long until a few more cross stitch projects pop up! 


Now it’s time to get back to the crochet blankets – I have so many ideas for them I can’t see me stopping anytime soon! 

Cross Stitch Elephants And Hearts Pillow


I came across the cross stitch pattern for this very cute elephant picture in CrossStitcher magazine issue 281 (2014), and I knew it would make the a perfect gift for a friend whose birthday is coming up. I also found some fabric which was an ideal match to make it into a cushion, this fabric is from the Indian Garden range by The Craft Cotton Company, I love the bright colours and bold patterns of this range. 
I love how this cushion has turned out I Think I may need to make one of these for myself…..
