Today I finished up two pieces that I had made. The first one is one I made a few months ago and wasn't sure what to do with it.
I made it into a pillow. I think Pillows are nice because you can hang them anywhere or put them in a group setting, so they are more versatile pieces. This one was based on an antique postcard, I love the design and am thinking of doing another someday in lighter colors.
The second is one I made this week. It is based on a design I found in an old sampler. It was a test sample, I like to see how they work up and what I do and don't like about a design before I make it into a pattern. I will probably rework this one differently and try another punch with it. This one I made into a thinner pillow, so that it can hang flatter on a cupboard or wall. Hopefully this coming week, I can get to work on the patterns some of you have requested and have them done by next weekend.
