Sweet Holiday Pillow


I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. Mine was extra special as my dad was able to come home from the hospital on Christmas Eve! It was more quiet than usual as my parents couldn't come to my house, but we all got together yesterday for dessert and gift exchange so it turned out really nice.
I just finished up this little piece, Seasons Greetings, by Carol over at Istitchaholic blog (see sidebar). It's a free pattern and works up quickly. I like it a lot and it adds a nice little country touch to my Christmas decorating. I used leftover linen I had in my stash and some red and green DMC floss. I added a couple little jingle bells for an added touch. I used some leftover fabric I had from Carol's other design, Noel, that I just finished last week. I'm happy to I was able to squeeze in one more Christmas project before the new year.

so pretty. : ) Glad to hear that your daddy is doing better and everyone was able to get together...even if it was after the fact.

Pretty finale for 2009. Must we stop stitching ornies, though? I've gotten in a couple, too.

Wow, beautiful! I'm resolving to do more creative work this year, not just knitting sweaters and dishcloths. You've inspired me a lot over the past year!

Looks lovely. I just finished a variation of it as a "spring" style birthday present for my daughter.
