I finished stitching Amitie last week. It was stitched with DMC 115, one of my favourites. I love redwork!I decided to finish it as a pillow for my mum's birthday. This is the first time i've ever made a pillow like this and i really enjoyed making it. I followed Dani's instructions from the Focus on Finishing blog and they were so easy to follow. I used to hate finishing but these days i cant wait to finish the stitching to make it into something, it's so satisfying!!I used the fabric i've shown in a previous entry. It matched perfectly with this piece.
I'm very proud of my pillow. I don't think i could've given it away to anyone else LOL At least i know i'll see it a lot as it's currently on display in my parent's living room. It took me a while to make as it is all hand sewn. Must've been at least 6 hours work anyway. I enjoyed making it so much!!
