Still Stitchen!

 Since the " getter" has now been given the gift it's safe for me to show you the house-warming pillow that I made for a dear friend and her darling new home. 

The numbers are of course her new house numbers done in raw edge applique.  I hand drew the numbers on some wonderful fabric and then appliqued them to some painters drop cloth fabric that I had bought and washed up for a nice natural look.

  After doing the applique I then stippled around the numbers and then made the pillow up with self made piping to match the fabric in the numbers.  I used a pillow form and the back has an envelope opening so it can be washed if need be.

I might just have to make one of these for myself!

You have the most adorable ideas ever. You are so original. This pillow is the cutest housewarming gift I have ever seen. This sure beats the potted plant or bottle of wine I always bring.
