what a little patchwork can do

So I couldn't just let things be! I started playing around with 2 1/2 inch squares this afternoon, and before I knew it my foxy stitching had become this....
 I had some of Cinderberry Stitches Woodland fabrics dying to be used. Amazing how the colors matched exactly (ok, maybe she did that on purpose? I'm sure she did! But it was amazing to me). I mixed in some other fabrics from my stash and it looked so cheerful. I stared at it for a bit, waiting for it to tell me whether it wanted to be a pillow or a wallhanging. In the end, pillow won out...
Doesn't it look sweet sitting on my newly painted bench? 
 Now I just need to go buy another 16 inch pillow form. I stole this one out of another pillow for the photo shoot. So nice to have a finish instead of one more work in progress, don't you think?

This pillow does look adorable on your bench!

The neighbors up the street had a garage sale and they had a bench like this. I probably would have bought it so I could put cute pillows on it, but I don't have the space.

The colurs in your new pillow are perfect to match your room. Looks great on the newly painted bench....

That is really adorable. Love how the patchwork makes the embroidery sing. And your projects talk to you too? I thought it was just me...

Happy day!

The pillow fabric goes so well with the stitching and it even coordinates with your walls and bench - cute.
