cherry cushion

My oldest UFO, my first ever needlepoint tapestry, is starting its new life as a cushion.


This was a very good exercise, because this was the first time I stretched a finished needlepoint tapestry, and I realised how important it is to do this job right. I have not done it as well as it should be. My corners are not quite square, so the tapestry is a bit wonky and as a result it was not easy to fit the embroidery into a square piece of fabric. I will know better next time....

  3. Is it wonderful ( makes me drool thinking of tasty cherries :)) ) and I like the fabric that you use for the pillow. The simple lines of it, straight lines against the "roundiness" of the cherries...wonderful effect !
    One UFO finished! great job !

  7. I tried needlepoint years and years ago. I never made anything as pretty as your piece. In fact, I can't remember a completed piece. I think I always chose too complicated designs.

  8. What a bright and cheery cushion! I think it's lovely, especially as I don't do needlepoint at all.

  9. Well, congratulations on such a perfect setting for the tapestry Radka. I have to tell you I can't notice the not so perfect corners. The fabric is just right, but then your choices are always that way in my opinion. I am soooooooo happy for you to have this lovely piece completed and on display.

  14. Regardless, it is a beautiful finish. The border is perfect and really shows off the tapestry. Feels good to finish this off I would imagine!! Now you can enjoy the 'fruits' of your labour:-)
