Stitching, stitching, more stitching and loving it!

I wanted to try something new and I couldn't resist these little stitchery pillows!
I had some muslin that I tea and coffee dyed with a little bit of vanilla. I couldn't decide if I liked tea dying or coffee dying better soooo I put them together and it's perfect. When you can't decide choose both. The stitcheries were fun to do and making them into little pillows made them come alive. The patters came from Olde Time Stitchin .
I had a few little punchneedle pictures left from my craft fairs so I'm going to put them on ebay this afternoon. I just love these little pictures you tuck them anywhere. I just draw the picture on the punchneedle cloth and work on it until I finish because I can't wait to see how it's going to turn out. No two are the exactly the same because each picture is drawn freehand.

I love sunflowers!

And the color pink!

More sunflowers...did I tell you I love sunflowers?
I've put more penny rugs on ebay and some dolls with great starting prices for auctions and buy it now.
I think I'll add these pillows too.

Here's the pillows I stitched this weekend and made them up into pillows yeaterday. Do you think they need anything else? I like them prim but not too prim. Should I add buttons, bells, rusty pins, fabric bows.....? Should I dye them more? What do you think?
I found the "love my dog" stitchery at Samantha blog click here to visit her blog...she also has a giveaway going on right now.

Happy Stitching,
Leanne

Leanne I think your stitchery pillows are perfect as they are but then I'm not a lover of the overly prim so take my opinion for what it's worth! ;) Your cheerful needle punches make me smile.
