It's around 5 a.m. and I have just finished making a pillow. I don't sleep well when Tim is at work. I figured I may as well make use of my time. Showing this picture is probably pointless. I did lighten it a bit but the lighting in our room is rather dim and it is, of course, still dark outside. I pulled the wider curtain panels together so you can see how they would darken a room. They are almost large enough to be curtains by themselves but I like the look of the different materials together. The toss pillow is just a gingham/homespun-ish material sewn into a round. I stitched onto it a little thing I was practicing crocheting earlier (from the yarn I purchased yesterday when I purchased the pillow fabric). I think I'd like to make a throw by joining a lot of these little things but I need to practice for that round bit is supposed to be a hexagon. At least I got some use from it. Waste not, want not, right?
Btw, have I mentioned that I enjoy comments (good or bad?)? Was that subtle? : )
