LOVE

One of the bigger projects I worked on the last weeks is this pillow:



I found the cross stitch pattern at Felicity Hall and after seeing it I knew immediately that I wanted to use it for something. I thought a while about what to make and in the end decided on a pillow, because you can never have enough of those (although my husband would probably disagree on this). 
First I crocheted the pillow cover in grey and afterwards I cross stitched the letters on it.
You can find a lot of other nice cross stitch patterns and complete kits on Felicity's site (especially the little clutches are great: I want the Bird Clutch!!). The pattern that I used for the pillow is a freebie. 

Here you see the pillow  in between some of the other pillows I made in the last months.

  3. It's really beautiful, Liz! I love the cheerful, sweet colour palette and font at work here. Everything you create is a joy to see, this pillow very much included.

    Big hugs & many thanks for being the first person to comment (and what a great comment it is!) on my Hawaiian honeymoon post today.
