more pillows

These little scrap / embroidered / appliqued (seriously, what’s it even called) pillow cases are so addictive and so much fun to make! As promised, here comes the second Sunny Circles Pillow:

and I made another Circus Elephant Pillow as well, this time on a deep purple base, which I think offsets the gorgeous scrap colors even more:

With this one I have finally figured out the perfect size for a 35x35cm pillow (and it’s not 35×35!) and I will stick to these measurements from now on. It’s a snug fit and looks better than the first one I think. I’m even contemplating making the other one just a tiny bit smaller, but I’m worried about the seams looking funny on the inside then. I have to say, I do miss having a zigzag-stitch.
Both of them are up in the shop now.


stitch therapy

First of all, thanks to all of you who offered support, especially our friends from Italy (you guys know I’m not very articulate in Italian, but we do realise how much you’re doing and are so so grateful!).
It’s been a strange and anxious couple of days but things are looking up and will hopefully continue to do so. We have an awful lot to be thankful for and just have to work on focusing on the good things and pushing fearful thoughts aside.
Between being at the hospital and making lots of phone calls I have found stitching to be very therapeutic and have been doing little else for days.
So here goes, nerd alert 😉
