Coffee - Let the People Choose


Jo's Let the People Choose this month is Coffee .... perfect for me as I love coffee

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching  hosts many blog activities for us all to join in with, this one is really making me think each month.

In 2011, I cannot believe it was so long ago, three lovely ladies at Needlecraft Haven and I decided to do a Round Robin. It was a first for Julie and Hazel but Tina and I had taken part in these fun stitchings before.

At the time I had a new car and all the interior accessories were pink ... steering wheel cover, floor mats, air fresheners. I decided to make a pink cushion and using Lizzie Kate design I made this chart for my Round Robin. The photo is  bit blurred because I had to screen shot it from an old post in 2011, apologies but I think you can see it still

I loved stitching this, I did the borders and my name before sending it off. Julie, Hazel and Tina chose one of the design squares and stitched their name (I charted the names using LK alphabet) I stitched the final square when it came home .... and that was 'coffee crazy' perfect for me.

Sadly I no longer have my car but I do still have the cushion although no-one uses it as I don't want it spoilt.

My superb Round Robin cushion

  3. As I drink my morning coffee, I am admiring your pillow that you and your friends created. Nice touch that you put your names on it too! I wouldn't use it either!
