A Huge Desire

This last couple of days I've felt a huge desire to sort things out. To bring past creative excursions to fruition.

I thought I would start with these ........................

These 3 tapestry canvases and one cross-stitch linen were made some time ago (when I could actually see what I was doing). All four were made with the intention of making into cushions for my sofa.

BUT and this is a real biggie, Mr. P hates cushions!!!

To my way of thinking, sofa = cushions. Whats not to like?

But, dear reader, I feel in a rebellious mood and am going to assert myself and make them up anyway.

The compromise being, that I won't put one on his chair, over his head maybe, but not on his chair. Wish me luck!



  1. Wonderful work. Love all them, especially the last. It reminds me of my Portmeiron Botanical garden. Keep it up.

  2. They are beautiful - of course they have to be cushions even if no one sits on them! I get a bit twitchy when people squash my needlepoint cushions - they are just for admiring really!

  3. Hi Jak!
    You must make them up! You know he might like them better once you've finished them. Seeing all your hard work. They are gorgeous designs, I'd definitely work on them.
    Have a good weekend! Thanks for popping over and leaving your comments.
    Hugs and Love Suex
