Despite the fact that fireworks
and firecrackers were pretty much
finished last weekend,
I continue to look at the month of July
as the Red, White and Blue month.
That way I don't feel bad
finishing up this cute free embroidery pattern
from Crabapple Hill.
I had taken the pattern and enlarged it,
did some coloring with crayons,
heat set the color,
and finished up with the embroidery.
It became the perfect size for a
small holiday pillow.
(11" x 17")
I decided it needed the rickrack to
frame the piece and, of course,
so many things look better with rickrack.
Don't you agree?
It was nice to have a smallish project to work on.
Something to pick up and work on and
We've had a rainy week
here in colorful Colorado,
lots of welcomed rain and moisture.
And it's found me inside
busily sewing on a project that
I can show you next week.
Let's just say, it's the kind of
thing only a Nana would do
for her sweet grandkiddos.
Not necessarily smallish or relaxing.
Until Next Time-
Absolutely adorable! I love the addition of the rickrack. Happy July to you!ReplyDelete

Enlarging the design was a good idea. When I saw the pillow, I was trying to think if the design was big enough to do something like that.ReplyDelete
Cute pillow, I love seeing other peoples decorations for special events to jazz up the house.ReplyDelete
Rick rack rules!! I think we all love it - your choice of the red is perfect. A very dear holiday pillow.ReplyDelete

That pillow turned out so cute! The rick rack does frame the design very nicely. Looking forward to your unveiling.ReplyDelete
Hello Kyle, what a lovely holiday pillow! And you are so right: a rickrack always brings a smile to my face..... so much memories.... I most of my childhood-cloths had rickracks on them....... (long time ago..).ReplyDelete
Looking forward to your surprise for the grandkids!
I also look after my grandkids for a few days a week and now we have summervacation..... I really miss them! Maybe that's why I'm so fast with my UFO-pile...... ;)
Love from the Netherlands, enjoy your indoor-stitchiing.....
Gorgeous pillow! You have a lovely blog. :)ReplyDelete
