A family affair
You featured my letters about the samplers I stitched when both my nieces were born, as well as the cushion I made for my eldest neice for her first birthday. I’d be delighted if you would also print a photo of this cushion – I made it for my second niece’s first birthday! I loved designing and making this cushion for her to celebrate the occasion, just as I did for my eldest niece. My oma (Dutch for grandmother) made cushions for me when I was little and I still treasure them today, and I hope both Grace and Emily can get as much pleasure out of these as I did. Happy birthday, my little Emily. Katie says: Wow, what an amazing family tradition. Thank you for sharing this with us, Irena! Do continue to send us your creations in the future. Your nieces are two lucky little girls to have such a loving auntie!
