Embroidered Cushion

It's a nice feeling to be able to use your hand embroidered items around the home, not just hang them on the wall. This embroidered cushion uses a variety of embroidery stitches and makes a lovely addition to the bedroom.

This took a little longer to do and looks complicated, but all the instructions were included in the embroidery kit. Very satisfying when it was completed.

The long and short stich shading makes for subtle blending of colours on the petals and leaves, and for the tactile person, feels very pleasing to touch. Other stitches used are stem stitch, french knots, outline stitch, satin stitchand lazy daisy, which I had not done for a long time.
