Look what I finished!
I'm so bad about finishing things up, so I'm really pleased to have this pin pillow done. The pattern is "A Bird in Hand" by Blackbird Designs. I stitched it into a pillow, stuffed it with a mix of crushed walnut shells and bamboo filling, and then trimmed it with some vintage lace from my scrapbooking stash.
Now that I've finished the pillow, I've had to decide what to work on next. I have an order in for some linen to work on a couple of new patterns. In the meantime, I've decided to devote my stitching time to finishing one of my samplers already in progress. This sampler is already about halfway done, and it's one I got in an Essamplaire class two years ago. High time I got around to putting some more stitches in her!
I was originally planning to go home this weekend, but circumstances changed, and I decided to stay in town. So today will be a long chain of loading the laundry, working on my sampler, and hopefully getting some more scrapbooking done. The cats are wrestling with one another, and I'm looking forward to a big box of Prima flowers landing on my doorstep later this afternoon.
