Last summer this little lady started learning how to embroider with the help of Hoop-a-Loops, (Thank you, Susan!) and when we were visiting last fall, she finished her second piece of stitching which I brought home to make into a pillow. And finish it I did, finally, this past week with the help of some perfect fabric that I found at one of the quilt show boutiques and a great button and some dark green piping courtesy of JoAnn's.
Said pillow is winging its way to the Midwest. I hope she likes it.
The fabric! (The bow below is the correct color.)
Can you see the turtle button? This project was more difficult than the first one, and I think she did a great job, don't you?
Meanwhile, I finished another hat which should fit the intended recipient much better than the last one! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend. The countdown to Christmas begins tomorrow, so I need to get back to work. Ciao!
