Two pillows done

Jack and the Beanstalk is now a pillow, about 12″x16″. It is hand embroidered, my own design, inspired by a book of fairy tales. This has an overlap opening on the back.
And I finished the Mermaid and Troubadour pillow, about 15″ by 16″. This is my favorite one. It has a side zipper.
Here are the backs. Jack has blue and green. Mermaid has lavender and multicolor.





Sunshine Pillow done

The Sunshine pillow is done. This is a big one. The white part is 20″ sq.
This story began in a castle. Magical things always start around castles. The first thing on the scene was the running elf. I didn’t know what he was running from, but the gnome is standing by to help if needed. Meanwhile some dandelions started growing in the corner, you know how fast they come up. And a wise owl landed on a nearby branch, looking mysterious. Maybe he was an omen that a fairy was in the area? Because she flew in, sprinkling swirls and stars. A boat sailing on it’s own wave appeared, and it became a sunny day and starry night, at the same time.
Now I should finish 3 more pillows that I embroidered a long time ago, before starting another one. Let’s see if I can.

Catch-up pictures

 This is my granddaughters’ dresser. The painting is done, but it needs to be sealed, when the weather is warm enough to spray. It has flowers, bluebirds and a fairy on the front…

and a bluebird and fairies on the back. Number 55.
