Red cross stitch sampler

I found this in my cupboard that was made a couple of years ago. I thought if I put some white cotton behind it and a white backing, it might make a nice cushion to go with the 'quilt' (nearly finished hand quilting...hooray!). Still got to find some binding tho, so will have to have a rummage and see if I've got some that will contrast with the red.
So if it looks OK only three more cushions to go! Could put some red tassels on the corners maybe or beads?
Thank goodness the wind has died down in our corner at the top of Scotland. We had it for 2 days with heavy showers inbetween. We were predicted to have 70mph winds but fortunately we didn't have it that bad. I feel sorry for the those lower down who took the full force.

Been measuring up a window for a roman blind. I didn't know they were so expensive. So back to the drawing board as I'm not able to make one myself.

I've got my knitting mojo back and am waiting for a couple of patterns to arrive, hope they come soon so I can get some wool before I lose the urge to knit again!!!


  1. Your sampler turned out gorgeous! I love anything w/red & white!

    Thanks for visiting recently.


  2. Ooh I do love a sampler and the red and white is fab! I'm sure you'll come up with something very stylish for your window as I can't imagine there's anything you can't do!

  3. Penny - this is absolutely beautiful!
