"Slipping this one in."

Hello,

January has well and truly been all about getting those little projects done. I had a pillowslip cut out for quite a while but decided the white fabric was a little thin. So I decided to cut out another piece and quilt it together for the top.


Of course I had to machine embroider some Pink roses on it.


Which matches the fabric on the side panel.The pink ribbon actually had some writing on it but when you turn it over you can't see it. The good thing about this type of sewing it feels like you are making something for nothing which is a good feeling.

Have you made something for nothing lately?

Happy days.
Bev C

Good Evening Bev, You can never have too many pillow slips.....especially when they are as pretty as this one.
Like you I love making things from nothing, I get a great feeling of satisfaction.
The cushion I posted about today, was technically free. As I used a cotton sheet which I have had forever and which I used when we lived in warmer climates and the beads were a gift from my daughter, so although I bought the sheet it was a long time ago.
Have a lovely evening.
Best Wishes, Daphne

So lovely! I am either dreaming up a design or stitching on a project everyday.......for no reason except that I live and breathe hand embroidery! LOL. How is your son? I hope much better.
