Sewing thread dragons

 More hoarding discovered.
Nine patch dragon cushion cover
This little nine patch cushion was one of my early moves towards sewn decoration.  The dragons were completed using ordinary sewing thread and not a specialised embroidery floss.  The colours are different thicknesses of thread, the light grey  and golden yellow were easier to work with than the dark.  This cushion was made about three years before the grey log cabin quilt in my earlier entry. You can see the lessons learnt from pinny to cushion to quilt decoration is quite a marked one.
