Something new from something old

With storage space at a premium I have been having a sort out. I found this cross stitch,  I had done about 13 years ago (at least), which was made into a wall hanging. It was not on display any more ,but rolled up and stuffed on one of my shelves, so I decided to find a better use for it. Had some of this lovely yellow fabric left so decided to turn it  into a cushion. It does look really  lovely in our living room. Must admit I almost gave the cross stitch to the charity shop. It just shows that you can update things you don't use really easily. Thanks for looking and have a lovely day.
By wisdom a house is built,
    and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled
    with rare and beautiful treasures.
