Honeysuckle Cross Stitching Complete

It has taken a while, but the stitching for the honeysuckle cushion is complete.  I think there was more stitching in the border than there was in the central panel.


Once the border was finished, it was back to the central panel to do the back stitching and french knots for the stamens.  Fortunately, this didn't take long at all.

This is now ready to be finished into a cushion.  I just have to decide on the fabric and then attempt mitred corners for the first time.

For the first time, I have gone through the whole of this magazine and done all the projects I will from it.  I've certainly got my moneys worth from it and it  means one less in my library.

Lovely piece. I've never done mitred corners on a pillow. Can't wait to see how it turns out. If you discover any useful tips for doing this, please share them.

Your honeysuckle is beautiful! Well done! Mitred corners aren't that bad, as I remember. Been a long time since I did any though! LOL

The colors are beautiful. Don't you love when you can make more than one item from a book or magazine?

What a gorgeous cross stitch. I've done a lot of cross stitch, but never saw a pattern with a border like that! At first glance I thought it was framed in fabric...just beautiful!

Gorgeous! I would hate anyone to lean against this cushion! And eight projects from one magazine is pretty good going! I think the most I have marked in one mag. is about six...not that I'll ever do them, but I can dream, lol!
