Projects!





I have been trying to finish up some projects around my
home before starting new ones.

I fell in love with felt many years ago. I worked on
many projects to become familiar with it before venturing
on my own designs. Soon I found myself with quite
a stash of different colors.
This pillow was inspired by penny rugs. 
I cut many, many circles and attached them together with
a blanket stitch using DMC floss. A few weeks ago when
I pulled it out to work on it, I was pleasantly
surprised to find that I had already attached the
circles to the cream background. Contrasting piping and
a back is all it needed.  It is so enjoyable to see
it finished and having a proper place in my home.

(The chair the pillow is perched on is a project in waiting.
The seat fabric needs replacing.)
