Pillow Time

I've seen a few of these pillow type finishes around lately so was inspired to have a go myself this week.

This is Lovely and Faithful, a threadpack by Little House Needleworks. I stitched this design when we were away on holiday last October.


and one of this month's Christmas ornaments, made into a pillow as well.



I had spotted this lovely red fabric visit on a visit to my local quilting shop the other day - they have got some gorgeous new fabrics in since the New Year. Very, very tempting I must say, lol.


We're enjoying a stunning day here and later on, we will be heading out to the local aerodrome. They're having an open day for their 75th anniversary and have numerous aircraft to see and aerial displays to watch too - these we can actually see from our back yard:)


Have a fun weekend!

These are gorgeous Katrina. I've seen lots of these around lately and they don't look too difficult(I hope). Even for a very amateur finisher like me - I'm sure it's possible? lol Have a great day at the air show, we've got a beautiful day down here today too.

I love your pillow finishes. They don't look too difficult and I'm hoping that I could manage one myself. Unfortunatly it'll have to be done by hand since I don't have a machine.
