My forget me not pillow is coming along. I have to attach the leaves and embroider the trendils. I am going to make some flowers out of wool strips. They will make nice pins or embellishments to a bag or jacket. I have some pretty pink I am going to try it with. Look for a picture tomorrow.

Well my pillow did not get finished but wanted to share a picture of the top anyway. I have always wanted to try this weaving with fabric. I used my felt and just started cutting. This is a patriotic time of year so wanted to do something red, white and blue. You will find it on the porch in one of our new lawn chairs. Stop by and see the collection and enjoy some time chatting on the porch. We have a lovely space hear. Yesterday we were watching the chipmonks scurry around and we have a mother bird with babies in a nest in the rafters of the porch. She was not happy that we were setting there and could not get back to her babies! Well on to finish my Forget me not Pillow.

Well I am in a pillow mood. I am making some new designs and putting together a pillow using a weaving technique. They both are coming out great. I hope to have pictures for you tomorrow. The weaving technique will be a class. More details to come. Well off to sew!

I have been very lax on keeping updated here. So being my birthday I thought today was a good day to start new. Since my last post I moved the shop to Pittsfield and share and old housewith a quilt shop. It is working out very nicely. my yarns, fibers and hand dyed wools fit in great. It makes for a nice fit. Right now I am working on wool applique samples and thought designing some new pillows would be nice. Pillows are quick and easy and nice to change out with the seasons. As soon as I have one I will put a picture up. I decided to do some things for myself!!! What a great idea. so I am making a piece from the Arabella collection from Pat Sloan--Bella's Blooms. I am goint to change out some of the applique pieces for my hand dyed wool. It will look great in my living room. I need an up date and the bright colors of this collection will be great. Well off to get ready for my birthday cookout.
