Roses For A Friend...
I have been having ''applique withdrawls'' I seem to have been doing a LOT of piecing of late and I do love doing applique and after doing the mug rugs I was itching to do some more applique...
I had been thinking about a friend and what I could make her so........
I made this
and a closer look
there is some hand stitching in the cream I used a variegated pink and it's not showing to clearly might be something to do with the time I took the photo...
The rose pattern can be found at Fat Cat Patterns 
the fabric use for the rose I dyed myself with procion dyes...
and I am not saying who the friend is as I think she drops in every now and then...


  1. What a lucky friend and what a goegeous cushion. Your hand dyed fabrics just make it!

  2. The pillow is GORGEOUS!
    Lucky friend! She will just LoVe it!

  3. It's lovely Tarnyia...especially with the hand dyed fabrics.I love applique but I have do it by hand as I am not that crash hot with the machine. Very pretty!

  4. Very lovely Tarnyia, especially with your own hand dyed fabrics. Lucky friend ! XO

  5. What a lucky friend to be receiving such a pretty gift.
