I wanted to make another pillow to match the first one, since I am hanging them on the same peg rack. I messed up and had to straighten up the bottom edge, but I think the whole stitchery is a bit wonky and seems that way in the photo. I love the design, but not the way it is put together, the bottom is too pointed to look nice hanging, so I think it would be better to round off the bottom corners. I decided to just use it as a shelf sitter with a bird arrangement.
I forgot to look at the photo before I started and made a blue bird, the one in the pattern is red, but I wanted blue anyways;) This is from the book, Simple Pleasures in Redwork by Kathy Schmitz.
One thing I forgot to mention, is that I reduced the designs from the book, by 20%. I wanted them a little smaller for the areas I am using them in.
Since I wanted something else to hang on the peg, I made a quick wool pillow today. This is a pattern by Primitive Gatherings' Lisa Bongean. It was fun to make, even though I made a mess of this one too, lol. The photo is horrid, but we it is raining all week, so I had to use a flash. I used an over dyed pearl cotton on the stitchery and edge.
