Lucky girl

My Little Miss woke up to a surprise this morning- a late night of TV meant I finished off the slooowww craft, and turned it into a cushion (that was much quicker!). Don't look too close, I didn't wash it and there's a nice big grey pencil mark on it!

I backed it in rare red chenille, one of the harder ones to come by. This piece is a bit faded,
but I figure it'll be under the window, and fading looks good, I think- very vintage!
If you like the design, DMC have a few in that range, I'm thinking of getting the owl and love birds....because she needs more cross stitch cushions!

flannel flowers cushion is upside down!

And my poor slow cooker-a lovely piece of corned beef was nearly done, as I went to turn it (I know you are supposed to leave them, but I was going to bed, and wasn't sure if it should stay hot overnight) when I dropped the lid- onto the bench! Little bits of glass flew about- the corned beef was saved, and cut off all the outer bits in case of glass. Cam got half, she was confident I got it all!

I'm now on the lookout for a new lid. Anyone know where I can get one?

The cushion looks gorgeous with the red chenille backing. Jeez it must have been a very late night to get all that done!

Love the cushion, and yes, she does need more cos babushka's never travel alone....they always bring their family.
Sorry about the slow cooker though....that's a real bugger!

The cushion is gorgeous. My cousin has the same slow cooker, but I think he still needs the lid sorry. I'll keep a lookout for you.

Love the cushion. Keep your eyes on the op shops for a lid - you're sure to find one.

Love the way your cushion turned out. The red chenille is perfect.

Check the thrift stores. They usually have singles. I think I have an extra one but I'm in Oregon :)
