New cushions in my shop

bug zoo! New cushions in my shop! I've taken AGES to make these because I wanted to add in some brighter colours, either in the backing or binding. I tried red binding on the beetle, which I thought would look stunning, but somehow just didn't work so I opted for the more neutral look.
The difference in the cotton and linen doesn't show up so well in the photos and maybe next time I need to use slightly more contrasting fabrics. Anyway, I enjoyed making them, especially the embroidery, simple as it may be, and the addition of a few beads!

I love how these turned out, especially the beetle one. And your drawings are splendid - does that mean there'll be a whole lot more of these?
