Snowflake Pillow and Merry Christmas!

Laying out the batts.
 


Adding pencil roving snowflakes and bamboo viscose thrums.
 


The pillow back.
 


The finished pillow.
 


Now that my friend (a devoted reader of this blog) has opened her Christmas gift...

...I can finally share these photos with you.

I blended batts in blue and grey...

...and laid them out in a sort-of quilt block grid.

I made stylized snowflakes from grey pencil roving...

...and added bamboo viscose thrums for sparkle.

The fabric backing is another beloved piece from my stash...

...a European Christmas tree fabric that I really love.
***********************************************

I'd like to wish each of you a wonderful Christmas day...

...filled with scents of cinnamon and buttery pastry, and sounds of laughter, carols and happy voices.

I hope that you will both give and receive a cherished something...

...and that you will take time to pause for a moment and give thanks.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

Thanks, Kathy--I hope you like yours as much!! :)
Peebee--I'm amazed that you've already tried the biscotti!! (and very happy that you like them, too!) I didn't put a tree up this year, since I'm working all weekend, but I'll post some photos next year when I actually use the garland! :)
