My latest cushion...


My latest cushion is this one...



Gorgeous don't you think?


'Mouse' adores cushions too!



I love the embroidery motifs of butterflies and birds...

and the french twist...
well French I thought, until I read the stamp.
It says 'Liechtenstein'...
Now this is the incredible bit,
as my family has a past connection with this country.
Hubby's father was a prisoner of war in Liechtenstein, and became connected to the Royal family through the toils of war.
His father revisited the Prince and his family in the 1970s...
Hubby's brother visited on his OE.
My youngest daughter also wishes to one day visit this small principality.
Amazing how a small post stamp on a cushion bought in 2013 can revive memories from many, many years ago!
