Pillow post!

Monday again! Actually it is a lovely bright Monday here and it suits my spirit today!! A new day has dawned and I'm delighted to say we are back to playing 'happy families'.......The whole of last week was spent dealing with a stomach bug which Leah seemed to bring home from nursery:( Thankfully today the sun is shining and hope has returned:))

My post title explains this post-obviously the only stitching that could be done all of last week was something simple and an 'easy pick me up, put me down' project, so there was needle punch and applique.

I don't do Valentines much but I did spy a little doodle from 'Bird in Hand Primitives' blog and after punching, I thought it would look nice on a pocket pillow. Here is my attempt and I want to thank Robin for being so generous with her artistic talent and sharing freely her doodles.

I attached some rusty wire and hung it below a wall light. That is a rusty pin with some small buttons, in case you are wondering what is attached to the homespun tie.

This next pic is of my happy little helper as we sat this morning and stuffed a few other simple little wool applique pillows-so glad she is feeling well again and able to be up and about,

For now they are grouped together in a wire basket although the snowman will soon have to depart for another year and hopefully that will be a sign that spring has sprung?

Well, mums duties are beckoning-I have 10mins to be at the school to take my big son to get his haircut. Here's to a productive week, whatever you are doing,

Blessings, Shazy x

    I am ga-ga over your heart punch pocket pillow! It looks amazing, as do your other wool pillows ~ love them all, but esp. that snowman! What pattern is that? I am jealous over the amount of wool you have acquired! tee hee

  5. A cute pillow for Valentine's Day. I have very little to decorate with for February. Wish I could get some things done but not this year.

  6. Glad you are all feeling better. I can't seem to finish anything when I feel great. How do you do it when you are feeling poorly?! How is the wool dying coming along?

  12. Although I have not attempted one of Robin's patterns, I love her style and she is so sweet to share so much of her talent! What a cute idea to make a pocket pillow from one of her doodles, it turned out beautiful!

    Sweet picture of your pretty little baby girl! I love when mine want to help out, it's fun to teach them about crafting.

    The cute little wool applique pillows are wonderfully prim! Love them!
