a special present...

I have been especially 
busy making this...
A special gift for a special 
lady celebrating 
her 80th birthday...
I couldn't believe how the flowers and buttons enhanced the plain cushion. In fact at first I thought one medallion would be enough...

I am thrilled with 
how special it looks...
I am by far a confident crafter, but with the help of YouTube, some beautiful soft pastel coloured wool and lots of patience I am pretty proud of this...

Wishing you all a very
'Special Weekend'

Please don’t leave without sharing your   
Special Comment, I love to hear what you 
have to say. Perhaps you might even like 
to follow, either way I would be thrilled.
 Of course I will endeavour to return
 the favour when I visit you!
I so look forward to meeting you...
 Your Special 'K'

 These special images,
