R B and S Challenge


The Stitching Challenge with Anita and myself for this month was to make a cushion with R S and B.
It took a while for me to work out what I was going to do. I knew R had to be for Roses so I started with that and after a while it all fell into place.
S was for Sunflowers and B was for Butterfly's. Three of my favourite things. I was tempted to add some ric-rac. I even had it cut and pinned across the top but I didn't think it went together.
Anita will be putting her cushion on her blog over the weekend. It is different to mine. For next months challenge our theme is "Love" we can make it into whatever we want.
I had to share this photo of a ceiling full of roses. This is one of the theatres in the cinema at Matakana Cinemas in New Zealand. We were surprised to see how these cinemas were done up. We were actually in the wrong room. The movie we saw in another room had a beautiful chandelier and the most amazing ceilings.
I will hold off drawing the winner of the patchwork material until late Monday 2nd November This gives everyone a fairer chance due to different time zones.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Lovely challenge cushion and the roses look stunning there. They should have those at the dentist, when you sit in the chair and have to look up. Would be so much more relaxing, I think.

Love the cushion Bev; yes roses, sunflowers and butterflies are three of my favourite things.
I especially like the smaller of the cinemas at Matakana (decked out like a mid-eastern tent!), a friend and I saw "Departures" there a couple of weeks ago. We took the lazy-boy seats in the front!
