This is what it looked like, and here’s a link to the original post regarding it.
I asked for advice on how best to present this for my friend who was building her own house, and who has recently moved in – yay! Some suggestions were a hoop covered with turquoise ribbon, or framing it in white.
I decided I wanted to present this cross stitch as a cushion – here’s the finished product which I gifted just last week! I bordered the cross stitch with a bright turquoise fabric, and used a grey and turquoise feature floral fabric as the second border and backing. I inserted a lapped zipper into the back for a neat finish for this cushion.
Happy housewarming Anna! I am so proud of all that you have achieved.
