OPAM Challenge Finish…

..and just in the nick of time with only three days left in April!!  The pillow is stitched but I had to stuff it, temporarily, with some wrapped up warm and natural batting until I can make or buy a pillow form…it’s a little lumpy and bumpy but at least you get the illusion of it being a pillow.

P1070675   If you remember..the pillow is hand appliquéd wool on a black wool background…the black is a slightly mottled black.P1070667   Looks richer and much better in real life..

P1070670 ..but you get the idea!!

So this is my first and only finish for April.

Sheesh, another month down…is it just me or are the months turning into weeks as they fly by!!  I thought life would slow down after retirement but that’s not the case…life just keeps whizzing by…I have enough fabric and patterns to keep me out of trouble for another 50 or 60 years…do you think I’ll live to be 118?  Yeah, that’s what I thought…I better get busy…

Today I’m off to Hand Quilting…can’t wait to see all the ladies and the lovely quilts we will be working on…don’t worry I’ll take my camera!!  (Sure hope they remember me!! ;o)

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting!!

Beauty pillow! Love the mottled black for a background, way more interesting than flat black.

Very pretty pillow. I understand about not finishing lots of things in April....my UFO list looks pretty sad so far this year.

Your cushion is lovely, and so what if it is the only finish for this month? It's still a finish.
