Scandinavian embroidery

I haven't been posting much recently, except about Tag Tuesday, but I haven't been idle!
I have been wanting to do some hand embroidery from Clare Youngs' scandinavian needlecraft book for a while now, and decided the best way to do it was to just  start something! The coat hanger cover was simple but satisfying to do, so I followed it with a cushion cover. I love the freshness of gingham, but must be careful not to go onto overload with it! There are lots more projects in this book, so watch this space ....
