Pillows with fringe

I haven't done much in the way of home dec sewing.  A co-worker wanted me to recover her couch cushions so I agreed to try.  It is always good to stretch your sewing skills and this did the trick.  Putting in a zipper in the seam with fringe was definitely a challenge.  The good news is I have one of my 2011 projects crossed off already.

I made two of these plaid pillows out of dupioni silk.

And I made five of these out of brocade.  I hope she likes them

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

My New Year's resolution was to start a sewing blog so I am starting early.  What better way to start than with a post of my first Christmas quilt.  It was a Crabapple Hill pattern called "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" and took me a couple years to make.  I finally finished this year and couldn't be more proud of my achievement.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
