I finished the little pillow Saturday morning - I'm pretty pleased with it, overall. If you look closely at the left side, you can see that the top piece is a little bit bigger than the bottom one, but Mom will love it no matter what. I can't complain too much, since I didn't exactly "measure" anything after the strips were attached to the stitched front piece...hehehe. And I love the way the corners make it look like a nine-patch quilt square!
Today I worked a bit on Mermaids of the Deep Blue. It was an absolutely gorgeous day today, so I just couldn't stitch ALL day....I weeded the front garden and then DH and I took the dog to the beach for a while. And of course we had to watch the season premiere of The Amazing Race! (It is our one "must see" guilty TV pleasure.)
Here are is my progress on the girls.
This week I'm planning to start the little "Sisters" pattern I have from Homespun Elegance, too.
Finally, on Friday I sent an email to Barbara Peterson of Something in Common. I absolutely loved stitching her little Woodland Sampler pattern, and I just wanted to say "thank you". I attached a pic of my finished piece as well. Well, she replied!! It made me happy to know that she took the time to read and respond to me, a lowly little stitcher. She also mentioned that she rarely gets feedback from stitchers. So I'm going to encourage you, my readers, to contact YOUR favorite designers and let them know that we appreciate what they give us!!
