I finished this in November 2016 and it was waiting in my study - craft room to get a finishing.
 Busy with the Christmas ornaments and other items I had no inspiration or time for it.
Last week I was in H&M , here in New Orleans they have a home department and I love to shop and to browse there.
I bought a black velvet cushion cover and here is the result. 

                                          I fasten the embroidery with press studs and
                            the reverse is in style with a pied de poule or houndstooth  fabric.

Time flies, it's Mardi Gras 2017. 

Two years ago we moved to New Orleans just before the Mardi Gras 2015.

I bought  this needle point  in the Quarter Stitch  . 
The colours are typical from the Mardi Gras in New Orleans
Purple Green Yellow 
It is my first try with needle point if you look good you will see I made some errors.
Still I like it and it hangs outside next to the front door from our apartment.
