My First Decorated Pillow

I really enjoyed stitching iStitch's Sew a Brown Bunny, and finishing it was such fun. Thanks to Carol of Stitching Dreams, I learned the secret of attaching ric-rac (what a relief to learn I didn't have to sew it and could glue it instead). I chose the hot pink to pick up the color of the little heart and the flowers in the fabric. I have Michele to thank for the sweet gift of this chart - Michele, I loved every stitch!

R&R Abecedarian Blend
DMC and Crescent Colours

My other stitching has mostly been for the Oakhaven Designs Owl Sal - below are the April and May pieces. I'm looking forward to June - wonder what the theme of the month will be?

April Owl

May Owl

I'm still plugging away on The North Wind, and hope to post a finished picture soon. It's time to be stitching on something springy!

The owls are cute!

Carol said...

Your pillow turned out so nicely, Michele--so bright and cheery. Your owls are cute as well--love the mama and her baby.

It sure is time to be stitching something "springy," but where is our spring? It is so cool and rainy--will it ever warm up :)
