Pillow talk

I loved the idea of this pillow...the final result, not so much. I think the fabric I used was too shiny/thin and so the cotton looks wonky in there. Oh well, it was still fun to make while listening to Alvvays.
Christmas was great!
My dad made me this frame as a Christmas gift. The photo is my family at our cabin in July.

Canvas journal with rice stitch binding

I made a journal of canvas with grey felt sewed to the back for extra padding.
The button is made of coconut wood.
I used long stitch binding then did the rice (weaving) stitch with a maroon floss. It was so fun!
Close up!

Embroidery hoop wall hanging

I made a bird of embroidery floss and kept it in the hoop I stained last week. Now it's on the wall behind my desk.
I made the other hanging lantern picture earlier and hung it up too.
Here's the wall behind my laptop. Homework corner!
