Baby Lion Pillow

Another cross stitched pillow!  I made this one for my friend who bought me a cross stitch book of baby animals with their mothers.  While working on it, it looked pretty good; "framing" it with fabric made the  cross stitch colors pop.

Batik Table Runner

I made this table runner for a friend who bought this piece of batik while living in Asia.  I didn't want to cut it up into small bits so I left it almost full size except for trimming off the one edge & relocating it on both ends.  I added the gold/beige color because there are bits of this same color in the batik -- hard to see in the pix.  I hope she likes it -- it's going in the mail tomorrow.

Another Library Display

Here's another library window display of cross stitch -- this time with black framed pieces & two pillows. Decorating the library window has been fun -- this is my fourth time -- but it's my last one for a while.  I'm fresh out of ideas.
