Yep! That's me dancing around the living room. And here my mother just said 'Hey, you did that fast.' My answer? 'Yeah, it only took about 7 years!' But I am seriously happy to say my pillow is really finished. I am doing the happy giving dance so stay tuned to hear about that...
I sewed piping for around the pillow's edge. I like the simple look to this since the stitching has a primitive look to it.
I thought it would be nice to use some of my ribbon for the backing closures. This needs a little bigger pillow in it but I was too excited to worry about it right now. Of course, after going to see the Christmas displays in a nearby garden center today, I would love to start my Christmas decorations but will put this away until the decorations come out later in the year.
This fabric is a cinnamon color with burnt orange. It has a star anise motif. Remember that happy giving dance? I want to giveaway the remainder of the fabric so someone else can enjoy using it for a finish. There is more than a fat quarter left and I would love to send it on its way to you to help me celebrate. So leave me a comment on this post to be entered into the giveaway. If you do not blog, be sure you leave me your email address so I can contact you if you win. Best of luck to you!
