Dawn's Gift

Just a quickie to reveal Dawn's gift I made her. It seems to have taken forever to arrive but I am glad it finally has!
Lizzie Kate cushion for Dawn
Dawn said she liked greens and purples so I used some of the gorgeous fabric Tracy gave me and also the chart she gave me. I thought it was appropriate as the saying is so sweet. I put some petite beads on it too and added some lavender. I even made the tassels!! I'm not great at tassel making. I used different threads than the suggested ones and had fun dipping into my stash of hand dyes.
I really like this chart and it only took an evening or two to stitch it up. I was thinking if anyone would like this chart, leave me a post and I will send it on to you. It would be great if it could be passed around a bit like the sisterhood of the travelling pattern I have seen on another blog. If more than one person wants it then I'll do a draw for it.

I'm still making up gifties and I should hopefully have them done in less than a week. I only hope that there is something you like and want. I will feel very silly if no-one wants one of them!

Have a good week. Mine has been a bit pants up to now as I have had a major falling out with my sister but my dh is back today from being away so that's some consolation. xxx

This is very cute! You did a great job on the tassles and I love the colors.

Sorry to hear about your sister, and hope it's hugs and kisses again soon!

Sisters are a funny breed, aren't they :) Hope all is soon well between you. You've done a great job on your tassels! If you haven't had enough takers for your PIF offer then I'd love to sign up - my worry is that I don't get many readers on my blog, and I don't want to be a dead end for such a wonderful gesture. But you never know 'til you try, so sign me up :)

I just saw the pillow you made on Dawn's blog. It is simply beautiful, Hazel ;)

Wendy said...

Your pillow turned out very sweet! I stitched up this design for my daughter to give to her friends - 3 of them! But they were fun to stitch so I enjoyed it.

Good luck with your sister!

what a sweet gift. I'd be interested in the pattern if no one else has claimed it yet.

The chart has stitched up lovely I love the colours you've chose and there's you thinking you don't have a good eye for things you have a perfect eye, sorry to hear you've fallen out with your sister, but after all that's what sisters are for (laughing, crying and fighting), lol, I'm sure you'll make up soon I always do with mine, take care sweetie
