Bee True


This is the pillow I was working on when I had a little disagreement with the beast. 'I' wanted it to sew through two layers of that trim, but 'it' refused. Once I finally got the needle un-stuck, I continued sewing the rest of the pillow and just skipped over where the braid was double, then went back and hand stitched that part.
The chart/fabric/buttons are from the Stitch Every Day series from Just Another Button Company (not sure if I got it last year or the year before - the copyright date is 2005) Anyway - I picked up the backing fabric at Hobby Lobby the other day without having my piece to match it to - I think I did okay.
It is far from perfect but if you don't look too close, it's not half bad for a rookie.

Just a good job. Love your color combination. You inspire me to tackle some finishing. I stitch and stash in a box.
