Love the purple zigzag, and the fact that it is reversible! Great cover!

More fantastic covers and I can now add to the growing pile of awesomeness as my cover finally arrived. I think it stopped off in the Med somewhere, Calabaza, as it got a little sun on the way over....


Isn't it just the best? I love it so much and can barely stop hugging it to take photos. It's based on my golden age of travel theme and has the coolest reverse applique. Here is a close up of some of the detail:


The top yellow is much more golden than in the photos (it was nearly sunset when I arrived home and the light was fading fast) and the bottom colour is proper desert sand (as opposed to beach sand).

Thank you so much! Grin

I'm so glad you like it, PlumCrafty! I hope it enjoyed its travels  Tongue The edges of the letters and pyramids and such are stitched at least 4 times and interfaced as well so they should hold up in the wash  Smiley

I received from professionalpineapp le today! It's amazing and wonderful and I'll get pics up as soon as I can. Thank you, professionalpineapp le!

Britta Bear received the cushion I sent her a couple days ago, but hasn't had time to take pics yet. I forgot to take a pic after ironing it (again), but I do have this pic -


Britta, feel free to post a better pic once you have a chance!

I love the design and the technique used in the travel pillow!  The cording is also such a lovely detail!  I will have to research how to do the reverse applique...it gives so much depth!

Indigo_roses--what a lovely embroidery!  You did a wonderful job creating the rainbow within the design! 

How can there be so many different cushion covers?  We need another swap!
