In between sunning myself I finished off a needlepoint cushion. It's not perfect, but there are parts of it I like a lot. I've used embroidery thread and metallic silver thread, which works out well. What's less successful are the deep colours (such as the dark brown). I should've kept all the colours light and ice cream-ish, lots of pastels rather than anything too intense. Never mind, I'm still happy with it.
