Something new...

 Norma Whaley, of Timeless Traditions, inspired this little pillow...well, it is not a pillow yet, but I am working on it!!  The blue string border is for sky...
And the green border is for grass.  It is a long, skinny pillow, and this is just the top.  I look forward to having it completed,  to put on my bed, someday!!!  It is made from wool and wool felt on cotton.  Something new!!!

Have a wonderful day, everyone!!!

It is a very happy pillow. Will be a sweet addition to your home.
Coincidence--I have been turning a couple of random projects into pillows this evening, and they are both wool applique.

Sweet flower design. It will make a lovely pillow for your bed. Working with wool makes applique so much easier.

That is very sweet, I have a bag of wool felt fabric for a project that hasn't been made (yet?) but I'm sure there is lots there to do something like this. So happy and spring like it just makes you smile, will be a great addition to any room. Such fun to have a small project once in awhile.

Love it! Norma really is inspiring, isn't she?! I love her designs.
I'm putting the binding stitches on my red cross quilt. Hope to show it soon. Did you decide on your border yet?

I love your pillow top! So happy! I especially like the string pieced border, green for the grass and blue for the sky. Great idea!
