Latest Project- Project 9 -The Fan Pillow

I started stitching this project before we went to  Canberra and then I put it tin a safe place, well you know the rest. Managed to find it yesterday and have finished it off today. This is one of the projects where I am using the Martha Pullen Internet Embroidery Club designs for 2013. The design I used for this project is from the Recolor Vintage set. I also used some cotton emboroidered lace with ribbon theaded through it.
When I saw these designs I knew straight away that they were suited to this type of project. Many years ago OESD had a similar type of cushion with cats on it so I had that vaguely in my memory as they no longer seem to have that project on their site.
This cushion has curved sections and I have put a zipper in the back . I like the white on white palette but it would equally lovely done in coloured embroidery threads. I hope to have the tutorial sent out tomorrow to those who have signed up for my 2103 IEC Projects group.
