P is for pillow

I seem to be in a pillow phase at the moment.

For the first time I think I have the colourway knitting right. Though I don't think it looks perfect - you have to start some where. My own design (another first).













After all the blogging about this project - I have done it. It was inspired by this blog. Satin stitches was not working for me. I also don't think they would last in this house as a pillow so did it in applique and raw edge sewing.

It.is.done. phew.

Wow, you have been very busy lately! Two lovely projects. The satin stitch and I don't go together well either. Love how you solved the problem.

Clever you! Such lovely pillows. So impressed you designed the colourway knitted one yourself.
