Although I've been horrible at posting here, and haven't done as much needlework  (of any kind) as I'd like, I have done some.

I don't know when I started either of these pillow covers. I do know that one was a cutwork class, and the other a fringe class. (Both at Whitlock's, where my embroidery machine was purchased.)


Since I knew I was going to make this into a pillow cover, I wanted to make something interesting behind the cutwork, not just any other fabric. I ended up choosing a sequined fabric so it would catch the light. If you click on the photo, you'll be able to see it in the larger version. You can also see the grid pattern of the sequins through the embroidery linen. I finished this last spring. In time for our April anniversary, I think. My husband hung this on his den wall. The design is one given in class and I don't remember who's it is.


I completed this one the day after Valentine's Day, this year. The center heart is supposed to be fringed, but by the time I had finished it, I forgot to cut it. Now I need to review how to do that so that I get the fringe and not lose the stitches. I chose the other four hearts from Hearts-and-Flowers from Artistic Threadworks. Again, I don't remember whose design is the fringed class design.


EDIT: I just found both of the unidentified heart designs in my Husqvarna book/cd that came with my machine.
