Tapestry cushion finished: Primavera's sunflowers by Joanna Allen

This is the next tapestry cushion that I finished a while ago.  As with all my tapestry kits I bought it in a charity shop, this one some seven years ago.  It is by Primavera, and the designer is Joanna Allen.  You can still buy the kit, from John Lewis among other places.  It was not one of my favourites, but I still enjoyed stitching it, and I am very pleased by the way it turned out.  Somebody else helped stitch the flower bottom right, and it shows that it has been done in a different style.

The background wool for this kit was a dark red, and I was doubtful about how it would turn out.  The ones in John Lewis had a cream background, and I could not find a red one on the Internet either, although there was one in navy.  I thought cream would be too light and impractical, so I looked for a different colour.  In the end I chose a medium grey, and I like it.
