I'd stitched this picture of a local church with no particular plan as to what I'd do with it. The Church Fete is next week and raffle prizes are needed, so I turned it into a cushion by applying it to a plain background with a rope edged frame.

The church is unusual in that it has a chimney stack, hence the unusual angle for the photograph. The design is Sfumato and looks better from a distance than close up.

What a fabulous idea to preserve a photo of this church and make a pillow out of it. I'm sure that people who have lived in the area a long time will appreciate your efforts. Lovely stitchout!

That sounds like a nice thing to do with it. Smart idea. Keep up the good work. The church looks to be really old, is it? Keep up all your good work. I miss my machine :( it's in the shop again.......maybe they will get it fixed completely this time.

The Church dates back to the 11th Century. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book.
