A Pair of Pretty Projects

I promised to show how I display Jude‘s spirit cloth on a pillow. In keeping with her style, I stitched it, raw edge, with embroidery floss, to a linen/cotton pillow form with a damask-like floral pattern. I was happy to find a dusky pink crocheted trim from my sister in my box of goodies and sewed that along the edge of the pillow. The finished piece sits on a glider in my bedroom, often accompanied by our cat who always finds the most comfortable place in the house.

I’ve also finished the scrappy, wonky, stars quilt and it is now on it’s way to my hubby who will see that it gets to a wounded soldier. I’ve named it, thanks to Claire‘s Grace‘s (sorry, my bad — didn’t bother to check) comment, “Stars at Dusk.”

Here’s another view.
