Pillow swap!

I accidentally pushed the memory card into the computer too far and it went inside! My husband finally took it apart and fished it out so now I can post these gorgeous photos! I was so thrilled to open my package from Deb at http://triostitchstudio.blogspot.com/ (stupid blogger won't let me link correctly!) It is perfect in our family room though I am scared to put it on the couch because it is just too beautiful to get squished just yet! I love the way it looks perched there so I am going to leave it on display for awhile longer! Her sewing is impeccable! I told her I was so tempted to turn the whole pillow inside out and take a picture so everyone coild see how well she sewed it up- all finished with french seams and it just looks gorgeous!
Here is a better photo though these grey days make photos so hard to take. The negative side to living somewhere so lush and green
And here is the back- I love the whole thing! I love this swap because I always get to meet such nice and talented people!

Here is the pillow I made for my partner, Colleen over at Lucky Duck Dreams (http://cyarnell.blogspot.com/) She and I have similar colors that we like so that made it a bit easier. She said she loved Heather Ross fussy cut pillows and these prints worked well in her color preferences so I broke out the Mendocino. I Like the way it turned out- might have to make another one for myself. You can never have enough pillows!
