Two little finishes

I finished this the other day. I am going to make it into a pillow using this green pom-pom stuff. I loved Paulette's pillow, so now I am all about the pom-poms. It will be a week or so before I can post this pillow made, as well as, the gobble pillow. The reason is the my sewing machine lives at my BFF Cheryl's house. We do all our sewing together. It works for us. Right now she has some relatives visiting. So the pillows will wait.
This is the bonus sampler from BBD anniversary series. I am going to have it stretched and then I will pop into the frame that I am using for all the anniversary designs. The fabric is one of my all time favs, Autumn Blush. I did chance most of the fibers. I wanted alittle more pink than what was called for. I just have to finish the border on the bottom.
Sammi gets alittle put out if I don't occasionally post a picture of her. She looks so alert because I am holding a cookie as a bribe. It works every time.

Thanks for all the great comments on my last post. They are very appreciated. I see that I have 95 followers. I'm astounded! When I get to 100, I will be having a giveaway. Yeah!! Have a good few days and Happy Stitching.

Cute, cute!! Love the pom-poms! I had those put around some BOAF pilows I stitched a while back and have a pillow in the making with more poms...they are too cute!

Your bonus pattern from BBD is very pretty and the first one I've seen stitched up!

Muttley says WOOF to Sammi, which I guess means HELLO, lol! She's too cute!

Love your Jingle finish! I can't wait to see it all finished with the pom poms -- it's going to be so cute! Love your BBD AotH finish as well -- great colors! That's so fun that you keep your sewing machine at your friend's house and that you do all your sewing together.

Sammi is adorable!!

You gotta love those adorable hares! The pompom trim will be perfect. The BBD piece looks really pretty with those colors.

I just love those cute hares, Deborah--your pillow will look so cute trimmed in the green pompoms, too!

Little Sammi looks like a wonderful companion--give her an extra cookie from me, okay?

I love the sled in this design--looks great! You are definitely a fast stitcher. :) I think partnering up for finishing sounds like a good time; wonder if I'd use my machine more if I had a friend who is into it, as well.
