I love going to charity shops and flea markets. They are full of forgotten treasures waiting to be found. For a long time while walking around these shops and markets, I admired many abandoned cross stitch works and felt a bit of sadness about all the effort that had gone in them and how they were no longer wanted. Then one day I decided to do something about it and give them a new lease of life. This cushion above is made from a cross stitch picture rescued from a charity shop. I removed it from its frame, gave it a good wash and made it into a cushion cover. Quite lovely, in my opinion. This cushion cover and a few other things are now available from my Etsy shop.
