surprise!

Well, it was a surprise for me. While sorting out through some fabrics in my old trunk, I found a very old UFO which I forgot about, a patchwork block. One of my first ever patchwork attempts, all hand pieced and already quilted (not very well) - and then forgotten for many years.
Luckily I found the same red check fabric as in the middle of the block still in my stash and used it for the border- and new cushion was born today!

Going through your old things is just like shopping, you find all sorts of goodies that you forgot about! The cushion is just perfect for Christmas.

This is lovely.

After what has happened I understand why you have watermarked your pictures. I keep wondering whether I should be doing it.

That's such a lovely cushion Radka!
Can you remember where that pattern came from as I think it would be a good pattern for me to start with.
I could make a cushion to go on each of my granddaughter's beds - for their birthday's next year!
The lovely little doll quilt in the previous post is tempting me too!
Wishing you a happy week stitching.

PS I love your header photo - it looks as though Jack Frost has been visiting your garden!
You're such an inspiration to me

Hi, Radka. Adorable pillow, lucky you rescued the old block! Your doll quilt is adorable. I'm totally shocked about your problems with a blog thief. Thanks for informing your audience. And may you have a happy holiday season with lots of stitching.
best, nadia
