..and a pillow!!


Really inspired by Lisa and her amazing pillows. So I thought I would have a go and create my own. I loved putting the pieces together and adding as I went with no idea how it would look until it was finished (typical me and not having a plan!). I even did some machine quilting...never been undertaken before..but what fun it was. Still wont be quilting the girls big quilts though!!

And some buttons of course...got to have buttons!
Excuse the really crappy photos. That is what happens when you use the camera you got free with a printer!!!! Will have to re-acquaint myself with our Nikon coolpix!!

Oh, so pretty and feminine. I love the soft pinks and blues, such sweet fabric! How clever are you? I've looked at Lisa's pillows and sighed with inadequacy - there is no way I would ever have attempted to make one of my own. But you did so damn well, just lovely!

very nice! I've definitely got to get a machine one of these days ;-) Buttons are so hard to resist aren't they?
