Sunny Side Up

The last inch of my inherited piece of bright orange linen is used up and daughter has got a new pillow. If she get sick of it (she probably will as she does not really like orange, just this pillow), I want it back!

It too was a Let it go – let it grow project that I posted about here. It’s made the same way as Sunshiny Pillow, but the quilted lines form a rectangle. I’m putting some of the pearl cotton embroidery floss from this post to good use.

I have been looking for more gorgeous linen like this, but have not had any luck yet.

Happy Valentines Day, Shrovetide (AKA Bun Sunday), and Mother's Day to all!

  7. Well, I'd say your running stitch is perfected (if it wasn't already!) after all this linen stitching work. It is beautiful. Maybe you should stitch a "return to mom" tag into the lining, just to make sure.
