This and That from From the Strawberry Patch...

I'm keeping busy, there's always too much to do and not enough time to get it all accomplished. I don't know how I ever got anything done at all when I was allowed to leave the house! As fast as I finish one project I find three others to work on! I began setting these stitcheries together with low volume 25-patches.

OL pillow - front

I just about managed to iron out the trousers creases…

OL pillow - back OL pillow - front detail OL pillow - front detail 2

I made this pillow over 2 nights and what took the longest was to figure out the design of the pillow. Once that was done, cutting the fabric was easy. The only challenging part was ...
