Pillow Talk...

A very Good Monday to all! It's great to have you call in for a visit - the kettle has just boiled and I'm about to make a pot of tea for anyone who'd care to join me.

I've also finished a couple projects and thought I'd share a few pictures.

I think this little spring bunny pillow turned out quite well, considering I didn't have a pattern - the ideas in my mind sometimes translate successfully onto fabric!Remember this x-stitch I came up with a few weeks ago? I made it into a pillow and I'm listing it on my selling blog if you're interested.

I'm also listing this little pin tuck pillow on The Primitive Shelf. It's from a pattern by Primitive Betty's - don't you just love the wee bunnies and the tulip?

This is a first for me - an alphabet sampler! It's a free pattern from Blackbird Designs - i just used what threads i had to hand for a muted look. I've had the prim frame for ages and stitched up this sampler to fit in it and love how it looks now~
Still stitching bunnies and Easter things so lots to do!

Thanks again for the company and your visit! Can't wait to do it all again soon!
Best wishes


  1. Hey thanks for the invite! Just milk in my tea thanks:))

  3. You did GREAT without a pattern! I may just get inspired to attempt some creative gain.

  4. Hello Christine, good to see you and a cup of tea sounds great on this dreary, rainy day we're having! Better than snow I suppose.

  7. Hi Christine, I hope I'm not too late for tea.8-) Being as I am Texan, can you make mine a tall glass of sweet tea with ice?8-)
