Flamingo Pillow Love

This pillow started as needlepoint to keep me busy doing a minor foot surgery.  I had planned on making it a farmers market bag but it seemed to unbalanced to me.  I discovered the idea on Material Obsessions website.  When I decided it would not work I opted out for a pillow.  I found a picture of flamingo and traced it onto the backing and the rest is history.  It is really hard to put this down once you start!

The actual needle point.

Raechel's Quilt

This quilt was made for a dear friend in Nashville IN.  The task was to make a quilt out of scraps.  I had the middle squares left from a quilt that did not seem to ever get started which made it easier to sew this together.  The squares gave me a base to work around. The other pieces of this quilt were scraps I had left that were used to make it larger and find the scraps a new home.  I really liked how this came together.
