New life

I recently made a couple of cushions for an old friend from high school. She was so sweet, about 12 months ago she found me on Facebook & had a look at my Sean the Prawn creations & decided to gift me a whole heap of beautifully embroidered doilies that once belonged to her mother in law. She was hoping I'd give them a new life & that is exactly what I did. I love doilies & have quite a collection now. I treasure their beauty & uniqueness, not to mention the thought of just how much love & dedication went into all those pretty stitches. So yep, it means a lot to me to give these treasures a new life, a new chance to be admired. Thanks lovely Jo for the doilies & I hope you had a great birthday.

So beautiful. At least your friend had the sensitivity to give the beautiful doilies to someone who will care for them lovingly. Cherrie

I have those exact doilies at home that I made when I was younger with the help of my grandmother, wow it was amazing to see someone else had them too. I really love how you put them onto cushions. :)
