I promised you pink and pink it is. Stripes, gingham, Broderie Anglaise, piping and bullion knots. It's not even a quarter finished yet, covering piping cord with bullion knots and adorning a single seam with bullion loopy things takes and age...a happy age, a good way to while away a few hours but an age none the less. When it's finished it will be like this, a pin pillow and a pocket all in one.
You can learn how to make these if you like. I have listed the pillows and pages class as a work on your own package today........details at the foot of this post.
I'm loving all this pink. I always do and it always surprises me. I'm not a girlie girl by any stretch of the imagination, not even the wildest of wildest imaginations. My clothes are black and white and shades of grey. I have no time for make up, lipstick, any of that. Perhaps my femininity is satisfied by the occasional foray into pink stitching.
I apologise for yesterday...Typepad.....I don't know why I'm apologising really but most likely because they won't. This little home of rambling was inaccessible for hours. It played havoc with my stats and I posted gorgeous blue and white stuff that you probably missed. If you've got time, scroll down another inch or so and you can see what I'm talking about.
Now did someone say it was Easter? That means chocolate eggs. Guess what I'm going to be doing later then?
