Cross stitch cushion
This cross-stitch panel has been made up as a fine, plump cushion. Work of this kind was used not only for cushions, but fire screen coverings or square upholstery for a small bench or footstool. The work has been done in fine doubled wool, at a gauge of 9 squares per inch; resulting in a sturdy yet flexible piece of embroidery that wears well in daily use.
