Castle Pillow. Of course I made a few changes. The pattern makes a 20 inch square pillow. I find that pillow forms are expensive and tend to go flat rather quickly. Instead, I made my castle 20 1/2 x 26 1/2 inches, which is the same as a standard bed pillow. These can be purchased on sale very reasonably and replaced as needed.
I also used a piece of fabric that looked like stained glass instead of an open window. In the battlements, I left a few open as they would truly appear. The rick-rack isn't stitched down yet, I'll wait till after the quilting. We are planning a few embellishments, anyone have a fabric with a print of a dragon?
Ravelry by Leann Brown. It has the look I want. I am using what I have on hand, so am adjusting the number of rows. All the off whites will be ten rows and the rest will vary between 4 (I only have a bit of beige) and ten rows. Once the base row was established, I could stop counting and follow the previous row. Ten rows goes surprisingly fast and then I get to play with colour.
I'll have an update on both of these projects next week. That is, as long as I can keep myself from starting on yet another new project.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress
of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the
encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their
blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute
little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a
comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I hope that you are having fun and making progress on
whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment. Mister Linky is
waiting below for a link to your current post.
