April Smalls SAL and weekend happenings

I'm a bit late with my Smalls SAL check-in, because I left last Thursday for my annual pilgrimage to Celebration of Needlework in NH!    I had a great time at Celebration, and it was a much-needed getaway.  Much stitching was done, accompanied by lots of laughing and maybe a wee bit too much shopping.  Yikes! 
Last weekend I also finished and delivered the little pillow to my mother for her basket raffle.  I think that qualifies as a small, right?  Here it is -
pillow front
pillow back
completed gift basket - pillow, teacup and saucer, and a box of raspberry tea!
I also should probably include my little snowman watch, posted here earlier in April.

More pics from my weekend will come soon!

Lovely pillow beautifully finished.

Your pillow is perfect. I would never that thought to pull out that teacup and make it it's own project - One reason why I just love blogging. Can't wait to see your pictures of your Retreat.

Oh my - how gorgeous is that pillow! I love tea-themed stitched things. Well done.

Such a pretty design, and beautiful finishing! Your cushion is adorable, especially the patchwork back, and fits in perfectly with the gift basket. Whoever won the prize will be absolutely thrilled :)

I remember you posting about your mom volunteering your services to make something for the raffle. :-) Very pretty pillow!
I was at Celebration as well, wish we would have met…maybe next year.
