My daughter Beth has asked me to make a cushion as a birthday gift for her boyfriend's grandmother as she'll be 80 years old. So I set too with the usual assortment of cream and white fabrics and trimmings and buttons, and the lace trimming is the very last piece of lace that was leftover from when I made Beth her Christening gown, 20 years ago! Beth and her boyfriend were very cunning and managed to get a photograph of Hazel emailed me to me ready to print onto fabric. The printable fabric that I prefer is the inkjet fabric sheets by EQ Printables. The photograph they chose was one that had been taken on Hazel's wedding day. I just love these vintage photographs - they look great teamed with lace and ribbons and buttons. I was amazed at how much Beth's boyfriend looks like his grandfather. And his grandmother looks absolutely beautiful.....
.....well what do you think? I emailed a picture of it to Beth, so she could see how I was progressing, and Beth was really pleased with it - I hope Hazel will like it too!!
