I have had this chair for a little over a year now.............

given to me by a friend who dropped by for a visit.

It needed a new seat. Through the year, I have started stitching on several different designs..........
and not being happy with how they looked for this piece.

I knew I wanted something with roses and this needlepoint design gave me the look I was wanting.

It also took me a while to figure out how to place it onto the seat to make it look like it belonged there.

Here it is!
And now it sits in my dining room, where I hope to add more rose embellished items along the way!
How about you?
Do your dining room chairs have padded cushions.............
or maybe needlepoint of some kind?
I would love to hear!

It turned out perfect! I don't have any chairs that have the cushion, but a rocker I'd love to put something special on.

Beautiful! I also have a chair that needs a cushion like that. I tried one design and that didn't work, so I've put it away for awhile. I'm thinking this spring I will finally do something...!
