Gift for a Special Lady

I've just finished this cushion for my Aunty Jessie. She will be 89 years old on Wednesday. She is my favourite aunty and has not been keeping too well lately so I hope she loves her cushion.

Close up.

I hand quilted the Dresden Plate and machine quilted around the borders.

Remember the goldwork piece I was doing for Billy's work colleague ? Well it's back from the framers.
Billy chose the black frame with the gilt edging and I think it looks great. Just sets it off nicely. Can't wait to hear of Ian's reaction when he gets it. It will be a complete surprise for him.

It was very difficult to get a good photo of this because the high shine made it very reflective.

I've also been making good progress with the Mariner's Compass wall hanging but i'll save those photos for the next post.
Happy sewing
