In Good Time: Construction

I did like the red surround on the magazine version of In Good Time,  but I wanted a smaller cushion, reminiscent of a crewel cushion I worked on linen in 1972 - now in need of significant repair.  I considered backing the cushion in red, or dark green or blue, but in the end went for cream, using a remnant of blanketing that I had.

I purchased some red piping and created a brick-like cushion.




This made up part of a birthday present for Jim.  If it proves to be too brick-like I will reduce the depth.

It looks fantastic with the red binding. I like it smaller too.
