This week it was time for me to switch gears.
I had been working on an embroidery
while I had been recently traveling.
In fact, it was a pattern from Crabapple Hill Studios
that I had purchased over a year ago while
attending one of Meg Hawkey's wonderful retreats.
Now it's done.
A patriotic design done in brighter
more contemporary floss colors.
The part that draws the most attention
is the use of gold bugle beads to
look like a sparkler.
I was determined I could find something
in my stash that would work for the pillow.
I eventually found the perfect back and cording fabric.
A piece that has to be about 20 years old, but
(Never give up your stash!)
Summer is the time for
flowers, fireworks and flags.
This little pillow is going to be enjoying
the summer months on my back porch.
Until Next Time-
