Here is the lovely Jake trying out my chunky cross-stitch cushion. I got into this last year afterI spotted a Forever Friends one in a magazine. It’s far easier than ‘little cross stitch as the design is painted onto the canvas so there’s no fiddly chart to follow, lots of scope for a bit of TV watching and creating at the same time. It takes less time too. This is an Anchor kit. I have sewn a red and white large polka dot fabric onto the back and finished it off with some bobble trim. Richard likes this cushion too and isn’t quite as slobbery as Jake so he gets to use it more!
