Jeanny 's Ackworth Cushions

I really enjoy the way you take the Needleprint projects and make them truly your own. Jeanny in the Netherlands has been making her Ackworth School samplers with a very individual slant. Not only has she personalized the patterns to make them relevant to her life, she has made them up into lovely cushions. The first comes from the Needleprint Beatrix Potter Sampler, the chart for which is now out of print, but copies do come up sometimes on eBay. For those who do not want to pay the eBay prices the chart is available as a downloadable pdf to print out - or you can also buy an editable format which comes with the software to customize your chart - and create many other items from the motifs and your own inspiration. Just click here to find out more.

I am sure many of you will recognize Mary Wigham's sampler. If you have not yet downloaded your for donation copy, you can simply click here.

Jeanny has finished her cushions so beautifully - they are lasting treasures. To visit Jeanny just click here.
