Ornamental Joy

I was able to spend a few hours at my sewing machine recently so now I'll have some actual finished stitching pieces to share over the next few posts.  

This Country Cottage Needleworks design was stitched way back in July, I think I stitched on it while on holiday in Australia.

I just love the bright red and greens in this design.



I chose some fairly bright red and green fabric for the backing and finished the pillow with a some red pom pom trim.






I'm not sure if this will go into the gift box or if its a keeper!

See you soon xx
