............. . ."She looks for wool and flax and works with her hands in delight" Proverbs 31:13 NAS
My sister-in-law and her hubby have been married 40 years. I
stitched this pillow in honor of their anniversary. I used fabric from my stash. I used a few charts for ideas and threw in a few ideas of my own, including a beaded border around the square. You may have to blow the photo up to see it.
At any rate, I found the pretty tassel trim at JoAnn’s and
bought some dark red satin fabric and turned it into a 14 inch square envelope
It took me a while to find a box to mail it in, but I did
and off it went. Having arrived safe and sound I can now blog about it.
I made this for my friend Sandra in the late 1990s because she had a black cat named Daisy and her favorite season is fall. It is about 4 inches square. At the time I was not sure how to finish it into something. So time went on and it moved with me to Nebraska, then Iowa, then North Carolina and now Colorado.
Fast forward to 2013 and my needlework skills and experience allowed me to make this into a flat fold and knowledge to add a button to cover up a spot where I accidentally started the black kitty and the threads left a mark.
Sandra emailed me how much she liked it, so now I can share it with the rest of you. I photographed it on top of the backing fabric.
Below is the strawberry pin cushion that was the second project of our June Sampler Guild Retreat which I last told you about here. It really is not that oragney - bad lighting on my part :(
