This is it! The year will be over in less than 24 hours, and I have one last finish to share with you. The stitching on this pillow was done over a year ago, but I was kind of daunted by the idea of hand-sewing a real-sized pillow. (I don't own a sewing machine, and frankly don't care for them. I think my mother's warnings to me about not sticking my hands near her machine has translated into a lifetime dislike) Anyway, I finally set to the task a few days ago. It's a 14 inch square pillow:
And here's the fabric I chose for the back:
Please disregard any tails or paws in the corners of my photos. They are always somewhere nearby.
I have finished all the stitching for my new designs, and have moved on to helping Mom with some of her model stitching. There's still a lot for me to do in the next month and a half, including building a website, eek! But the thing I'm most looking forward to (and most scared of), is sharing my work with you as we get closer to Nashville Market. And of course, I couldn't do a launch without a giveaway. So keep an eye out for that!
I hope all of you have a wonderful, safe New Year's celebration. I'll be joining a friend or two to watch my college team play in a bowl game, then ringing the new year in with my darling husband. Cheers!
