Icy blues

Yep, that’s a big sigh you heard. It was me before I picked up my embroidery scissors to tackle the snowflake for a Swiss snowflake stamp cushion…

This is me about half an hour later…

And this is the finished cushion. It’s on some of the bright turquoise fabric I bought when I was on my epic hunt for the elusive light turquoise felt. While I initially thought I might go with eye-popping red lettering, I decided to go with navy in keeping with the theme of icy blues. This photo doesn’t accurately show the true turquoise colour so you should pop along to my stall at the GOMA Christmas Design Market on Saturday 24 November to see it in person.
