A cushion for The South Atlantic Medal Association

The South Atlantic Medal Association provides a huge range of support and care for all those who fought in the Falklands conflict. http://www.sama82.org.uk/

David Leming, the Vice Chairman of the Association in Christchurch got in touch to ask for a cushion which can be raffled at their Gala Dinner on 14th June.

This one uses the beautiful pattern on one of Derek’s fabrics (for several cushions I’ve cut it so I could embroider the centre myself, but I couldn’t resist making at least one with the complete circle of embroidery!)

I’ve beaded it with beads left over from my daughter Sam’s wedding dress – when they catch the light they look beautiful, even if they were wee beasties to sew onto the firm fabric!
