My Finished Pillow!

It is finished!!!  Just in time for.......................well, to be packed away with the Christmas Decorations.  Oh well, it will make me more excited to get out the Christmas Decorations next Christmas.  I love how it turned out though.

 I'm actually sorta sad it's all done.  I REALLY enjoyed making this.  So much, that I think I will need to make a pillow for Valentines that is similar.  I gotta be honest. I've been going through my stash for Easter Fabrics too.

I decided to bind it in the brown polka dot fabric that I bought on a whim and so glad I did.  This is one I may buy more of just to keep in my stash.

For the back I just used some fabric I already had.  Most of this fabric is from a collection of Moda's, but it was a few years back.  Someday I will get out of my comfort zone of these dark fabrics for Christmas - maybe.

So did any of you watch Downton Abbey last night?  I was surprised - I think I'm softening a little towards Thomas.  I wanted to reach through the television and strangle Mr. Bates "wife".  Ok, and maybe I'm slow but the man Edith kissed was married right - seriously Edith, have you no conscience?  There is something fishy about with Mathew's fiance, if he doesn't Marry Mary I'm just going to - I don't know, boycott the BBC or something.

I love your pillow and admire your embroidery, since that' something I'm not very good at :p I had to laugh when you mentioned finishing it, then promptly storing it away until next Christmas. I did the same thing with a couple of Halloween projects last year. I didn't get them done until the day after Halloween, so won't really get to enjoy them until next year.

I love your pillow! The fabric is so pretty. We have the same views about D.A. Why can't Lady Grantham see through O'Brien? I don't trust that woman!
