With Christmas behind us and a New Year just starting, you probably feel you have earned some “Me Time” and what better way to relax and become lost in your thoughts than with some tapestry. You could rummage about a bit, before putting your feet up and find any tapestry treasures that you have been meaning to finish which have found their way to the back of the cupboard or the bottom of a bag. Yes- we all do that – I have rather more than most!
Often, there is not that much left to do and in finishing them off, you will remind yourself how much you enjoy stitching.
Alternatively, you will remind yourself what you didn’t like about it. Was it too complicated, too fine or too dreary? At least you will know what NOT to look for next time!
Once it is done, please do go the next step and make it up into the finished cushion. The transformation is astonishing and even the most twisted, screwed up piece of tapestry takes on a new life and becomes a thing of beauty and value. I know this sounds a bit over the top, but it really is true.
We can make up your treasures for you if you wish – the Cushion Ladies will soon be back, raring to go. (They get a bit bogged down immediately before Christmas with last minute curtains and party frocks!)
So when you are ready, do give us a call. If you want to make up your cushion yourself, we have a Stretching Only service (to straighten up your tapestry, no matter how crooked it is.) Or we have a full Making Up Service with all the details there.
