Hatched & Patched Angel Love Cushion..........

Wow we have had some wonderful rain over the last few days...great for the crops just emerging........beautiful soaking rain......hope no one is being flooded out by the wild weather up the coast.........

I started this stitchery more then 12 months ago and it got put aside and
then about 6 months later it got some borders and then I have been trying to
decide what to do with it.......wall hanging??? Cushions???? Bag???? 

Guess the cushion won out and then I decided to put a frill on the
edge.........I used some of the chenille that Flower Garden gave me ages ago
for the backing........ I was not sure where to put it but it got displayed
in front of my quilt in the background at our local show (you can find the
quilt here) and I decided then it would look good on that bed....
.....the quilt and the cushion both got 2nds at our local show..........

The pattern for the stitchery is a Simple Stitchings pattern of Anni Downs
Hatched and Patched called Angel Love....
After a drought on finishes I have finished this for the OPAM
challenge.......hosted by Tag Along Teddies and Abyquilt..........

.........take care til next time.............
