Pillows, Wool, Hooking

Pillows, Pillows, Pillows.......

Can you ever have enough.....

Well I added  more to go with my new dropcloth  slipcovers I made here.

I started with my leftover drop cloth pieces and made this cute cover.  Very plain...

So I proceeded to cut out Christmas Trees out of wool.

Then I appliqued them onto the pillow.

Love how this one turned out.  Note to self make another to match.

A finish!! Yes I finished this hooked wool pillow... It's not one of my best ..

Remember this here.

Well now it looks like this.

A quick peek at my living room... and the slipcover sofas.

New pillows on this sofa???

Well I ended up with this look for now.

Or maybe this look??????

                                                 Happy Pillow Day!!

  8. I love all of your pretty pillows! The one with the little trees cut out and appliqued to it is my favorite. Since you have a neutral backdrop, you can use whatever pillows you want!

  9. Linda, these pillows are AWESOME! Now I'm going to follow the link to your slipcovers! Oh my gosh, I'd LOVE to have slipcovers that actually fit my sofa and loveseat! The ones I have had for over 10 years from Surefit have always been a bit small because our sofas have slight camel backs. The problem is, I am NOT good with a sewing machine. Wish me luck!!


  10. The pillows are all so pretty, Linda. I especially like the hooked one. I do lots of types of needlework but I have never tried hooking. The trees are cute and I am currently working on a similar one. The pops of red look great with your neutrals.
