Pillow Finishing



Thank you for all the great comments! Its really so wonderful to read these and know that other stitchers are looking at my work. Blackbird Designs are so much fun to work on, now that Gift of Life is finished, I'm wondering which one the SAL group will want to work on next.

Not a lot to show on the stitching front otherwise this week. And since I do love to have pictures of something, here are 2 pillows that I finished last weekend from last year's Shepherd's Bush series.

I am happy dancing though - Spring has sprung!!! Even though we are having showers on and off today, yesterday was gloriously warm and an amazing 11 degrees! It felt wonderful! Of course hubby and I had to enjoy it with a walk along the lake with the doggies. I am so glad the clocks went back early this year so we can get out and enjoy the evenings. The sunset at the lake was gorgeous and the colour of the water beautiful. Why didn't I think to take the camera!?!

This weekend is the Christmas Ornament SAL but I think I'll have to beg off this one. The fibre I was waiting on for my last PIF giftie finally arrived and I want to get started on it.

Oh and one more thing to show, I bought this magazine last week and have had it sitting on my desk all week so I can admire the cover quilt. Its called Spice Island Beauty and is shown made with batiks. I'm in love with this one, but its listed as 'challenging' and I don't know if I 'm quite up to that. But one can dream.....


Have a wonderful weekend!!

I love your SB pillows! Would you mind sharing the dimensions of the strips? I want to use this finishing method for another design, but I'm having to use online pics of the SB ones and guesstimate the width of the strips ;)

Your pillows look wonderful Wendy! I have wanted to stitch up Be Happy since it first came out, I think it is time! Thanks for the inspiration.

Lovely finishing on the pillows, and Bee Happy is just to cute. Spice Island looks gorgeous, I'd go for it. Think of how pretty it would look set out (especially this fall when it turns cold again).

BTW, I can't imagine trying to cut up all that denium to make a crazy quilt. It would look great done, but just cutting up my flannel seemed to take forever, I'll bet your arms were exhausted.

Adorable pillows Wendy. I've had 'Be Happy' waiting for ages and you inspire me to start it.
Congratulations on your 'Garden of Life' finish - it's lovely. Love those Blackbird Designs.
Enjoy your wonderful spring weather.

Oh Wendy, I'm sorry, I was sure I'd commented here, but I can't see my name :( Your pillows are beautiful! I'm glad spring has sprung for you. I has here as well (fingers crossed it'll stay for good this time!)

I also wanted you to know, I'm seeing an eye doctor on Friday!! You know you had a role in spurring me to take appointments. I thought you'd be proud of me ;)
Big hugs from a sunny Paris! :)
