Pillow Finish

A couple of photos of the pillow I stitched this weekend. Sorry about the light quality. This is what you get when you take pictures at night!
It was Sweet Exemplary by Ewe & Eye and Friends. Stitched on a remnant of hand dyed linen using American Thread company 1502. It was a fun quick stitch and finish, just to prove to myself that I can actually complete something . I have to thank my good friend Pam for this chart, thanks Pam, and also for the eggs you see in the background.
I was also busy finishing my Earth Day Holiday round for the Fair and Square exchange - but I can't show pictures just yet.

Happy Easter

This is the Easter arrangement I did at my flower class last Wednesday. The moss basket was made in class at Christmas, and has kept really well - a squirt with the water spray greened it up.

I then used those lovely orange-peach roses, and added a certain something with the wonderful ginuea fowl feathers. Surprisingly the small chocolate eggs have stayed put, (I did count them!) and the paper eggs were purchased from work.
My Mum loved to arrange flowers, so this is for her.
Happy Easter to one and all.
