Pillow Power



One almost finished crewel embroidery piece.
One piece of old ACID green fabric.
One bag of pillow stuffing.
 
One DYNAMIC pillow.
 
I added some quilting stitches around the border
after layering it with batting.
I think it gives this pillow a great finished look.
 
This is a big week.
Lots of family happenings.
So...
why am I goofing around with old embroidery pieces
and making unnecessary pillows??
Because.
That's what I do when life gets busy!
LOL!
