A friend recently commissioned me to use some Emily Peacock needlepoint kits her friend had finished and make them into cushions. Her friend stitched the panels so beautifully and sadly has since passed away so these hold huge sentimental value for my friend. She doesn't sew and although was originally going to finish them herself she trusted me with the job. We discussed background fabrics and looked at home dec weight but there wasn't any that she fell in love with. She decided upon Oval Elements in Chocolate Cherry (available here and here) and it suits the panels so beautifully. I have used some wadding on the back to give it more cushion and they just need stuffing and sewing up. My friend will use these decoratively and hopefully they won't be subject to too much wear and tear. I should have these finished soon so will get some good pictures!

Yesterday I managed to get Collette's Bee A Brit Stingy blocks finished. She requested wonky log cabins using this simple tutorial. The bright colours are going to make a gorgeous quilt! Sorry for the late night pic but I had to get them ready to go in the post this morning.

I'm making headway with other projects and though I was planning on listing them today I think I'd better just get on with it all since the Finish Along Q2 deadline is fast approaching!
