Cherry Ripe ........

Been doing a bit of machine embroidery lately with my Singer Futura XL400 machine which has been mothballed for a while.  I used cream calico as the base for this cushion and it makes a super base material where you want to focus on the design (I used a tearaway stabiliser in the hoop during the embroidering).

I embroidered a large cherry design which was free from Embroidery Library Inc . They have a free weekly giveaway and all you need to do is register !  They also have loads of designs that you can buy.  I used polyester thread from Madeira for the sewing.

Thought this one was nice and fresh looking so used it as the centre on the cushion front.  Once embroidered I used a Greek key fancy stitch in red thread to frame the design and added a small red button on each corner of the border.  The cushion measures 16 x 16 inches.
