Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!
I am on a pillow-making frenzy! Ok, not really, unless sewing one pillow a week constitutes a frenzy...but in my world as a sewing newbie, it sorta does. So yeah! I am on a pillow-making frenzy!! :-D
(Click on the pic to get to my flickr, where you can see the individual pics in the mosaic more closely. And click here to get the embroidery pattern.)
This was a spur-of-the-moment pillow that I needed to make last night. (Don'tcha love it when you need to craft?) Well, actually it's been a long time coming; this was the first thing I embroidered and I'd been waiting to get a sewing machine so I could make a cute pillow. Anywho...I holed up in the office/craft room, put on some Alice in Chains and went to work. I tend to dive in rather blindly without giving much thought to a pattern. Whatever happens, happens. ;) It's not perfect, but I am quite fond of it. I think it's cute.
Hey, do you remember the sampler I've been working on? I am almost done with it!! All I have to do is add the tiny black seed beads in the "B" section...which I didn't have in my stash, so I had to order them. They should be here soon. So stay tuned, peeps! I will back soon with a picture of a finished sampler within a week, if all goes well. Until then...
