Cushion


I didn't do the old film and stitch yesterday after all, the foiled samples I made were sitting looking at me and I decided to place a burnt orange organza over the gold foil and machine stitch into it, I love this meandering effect, it makes the organza catch the light with a wonderful glow from the foil beneath, I spent ages looking for an old Chinese coin to put in the centre, and after searching through my big box of beads and bits found this piece from an old necklace, I made a small cushion 8" x 8" and as soon as I had finished found the coin I had been looking for :)

Isn't that the way it always happens? I think it looks great - I love the colors and the texture.

The coin must be meant for another project. The cushion is really gorgeous.
