Finished finish, better picture!

After an afternoon spent cleaning out the garage (ick), I decided to reward myself by spending the evening in my craft corner. I asked DH whether I should scrapbook or sew, and he said "sew." And for once I decided to take his input! hehehe

I know I asked for suggestions other than pillowifying, but this just seemed to suit it so well. It is about 5 inches square, and not a big puffy pillow - perfect as a door hanger.

I also broke out yet another little project - a kit from Twisted Threads that I picked up on our anniversary trip 2 years ago. It says "Share Love", is done in 3 colors of Silk Mori, and has a little heart charm for the center.....and I didn't realize when I bought it that it is to be done OVER ONE!!! On 32-ct. linen!!! Ack!!! And the way the charm is designed, I can't "cheat" and go over 2. It is coming along ok, but I can guarantee you this is one I won't stitch again....at least not as charted.....
