A New Pillow!

There has been a lot of cooking lately and not a lot of sewing... my other half has been away and by the time night rolls around I am shattered and sewing takes up way too much brain power! Cooking is something I can do with my oldest, he loves to help me out in the kitchen.

I enjoyed making the pillow for Bella and I wanted to make another one, it was intended for Alex but I really like it... maybe it's for me instead!

After it was sewn up I was undecided on how to finish it and it really didn't look done, I thought I'd give some hand quilting a go, it's the first time I've done it and it's definitely crooked and uneven stitches but that adds to the beauty of it... right?

So here it is! I've also entered it into the Blogger's Pillow Party. There are some amazing creations there!
