My first finish of 2011



This is the first finish of 2011. The pattern
is by LHN - Sunflower. Sunflowers are
one of my favorite flowers. I made this
into a small pillow. The fabric to finish is
very pretty and has different flowers with
sunflowers included. I have been going
through many trials and I needed a
ray of sunshine. This makes you smile.
I look forward to spring and summer.

You forgot to tell us where you are going to put it so you can enjoy it :0{

I like to put my new "ornaments" on the "thingy" that turns on the floor lamp next to my chair :0}

Very pretty first finish. Your finishing always looks so neat and clean! We have a field about an hours drive from here that is FULL of sunflowers! If I go there at the right time you see people getting out of their cars and walking into it to get photos!
