ONE WIP COMPLETED!


Well, I did it!  I finished a WIP.  I am really, REALLY happy with how it turned out.  The dresden was made completely from scrap fabric.  It is bright and cheery and I just love it.  I even added a bit of trapunto to the front circle so the blue center really "pops".  The most special scrap fabric is the polka dots...I bought them to make burp cloths when I was pregnant with J some 26 years ago!  I am fastidious about saving scraps, lol.  



The rest of the pillow cover is a really pretty white linen.  It fits a 16" pillow form perfectly.  I was planning on listing this in my shop immediately, but I really want to show it to the family first.  Who knows, my sentimental mother may just want a pillow with the fabric from J's burp cloths, lol.  It's hard to list something for sale when you absolutely love it, lol.  But it doesn't match the colors in my house...they are more of a mid-range intensity pastel, not bright.  

So I am going to sit on this for a few days and then decide if I can bear to part with it.  I'll let you know what I decide, lol.  Dear Hubby figures we will eventually begin to drown in all of my projects...but as long as I love crafting I should continue it.  He may be right!  I'd better practice my backstroke...glub, glub...
