I surprised myself...



...by managing to turn these, began earlier in the week, into decorative cushions.
After free motion stitching in a spiral from the centre, I felt it needed a bit more so I added some flowers to each block.
 

The stitching can be seen better from the back.


 The finished cushion has added tassels and painted flowers.


I practiced stitching in circles on this one.


The process for painting these began here.


Linking up with Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
