Pillow

When I found this little piece of CREWEL work...
it was folded up and neglected.
Aren't those flowers and weeds BEAUtiFUL???

'
Whoever spent ALL that time hand stitching..
never got around to
making it useful!!!
 

I LOVE taking these little UFO's and
turning them into SOMETHING!!
 
I added the borders and hand stitched around the outside..
then added a back and stuffing.

This time the something...
is a pillow!
:)
and...
it's in my little shop.

  1. Not only did you make it useful, you've also made it even more beautiful. Maybe someday someone else will finish our UFOs. It's a lovely thought:)
