Craft'n Fever

I've been feeling crafty lately....

Do you remember way back in November when I showed you the rose embroidery I was making? Well, I finally completed it and turned it into a pillow for my couch. Here is the finished product~

Inside is a nice soft down insert. I am thinking of making a blind for one of the windows with the same look as the back.

Of course it may be another 3 months until I get around to it:)

Beautiful! I recently found some old vintage embroidery patterns that were my grandmothers, never used. I have been thinking of trying some redwork with them. Your pillow really makes me want to get started!

Well, I am just tee-totally impressed by your talent. I love that pillow..the colors of the fabrics, buttons, and your embroidery!! All beautiful! I think a shade like that would be perfect!!

Hugs,
