a needlepoint cushion
I bought the tapestry and thread in England
And it took me "forever" to finish it
I chose the fox
because when we lived in the Cotswolds
We would often have a fox visit in the field across the lane
It's based on William Morris
And the colors, I felt, worked well in Linderhof
It ended up in one of the leather chairs in the sunroom
That was when I decided that I needed the companion piece
Which is no longer being made
But I found it in a shop in England and they kindly mailed it to me
And in April, I began stitching
And finished in September
(a record for me!)
And took it to Miracle Worker Mary
to make it into a pillow
I brought it home today!
And promptly put it in the other leather chair in the sunroom
While the fox resides in the first leather chair
The pillows look good in the leather chairs
It's nice to have companion pillows
(Much more fun to do than duplicates --
duplicates are boring -- you did them once
and you're doing them again!)
The Asian cabinet is in the sunroom until I can decide what to do with it
It was the one in the dining room that got replaced by the
antique curved glass china cabinet.
I'm still up in the air as whether or not I like it there!
But I do like the pillows in the chairs!
