Narrowboat cushion design - needlepoint
I don't think I've posted a picture of this design before - the cushion at the front left of the photo was inspired by the narrowboat signwriting and cabin decoration. I used to sell it as a kit, which came with a full alphabet and number chart, so you could add the name and date of your choice. Perhaps I should reissue the pattern?
I used to do a lot of needlepoint, all issued as patterns, mainly with Japanese designs (images from scanned photos).
The four seasons -
Designs from C17th Noh costumes -
From antique lacquerware -
Inspired by an old piece of chiyogami stencilled paper -
I have the cover for a 1930s recliner finished - just need to find an upholsterer to restore the chair!
