First I cut out the ruffle for my first pillow - BBD's Loose Feathers Autumn Song, half the size I had envisioned - I wanted a two inch ruffle but only cut out enough for a one inch ruffle. Not a huge tragedy but not a good start to my day either. I went with it because it looked OK. Then the gathering of the ruffle just took forever so I ended up putting it aside to work on it while I watched TV later in the evening.
Early Monday I went shopping and I purchased the trim for my Autumn Bouquet pillow and estimated that I needed two yards of trim. When I started on the pillow I decided that I wanted a much larger fabric border and then I ended being 8 inches short of the trim! Yikes. The end result was I had to put it aside to wait for more trim. By this time it's after dinner and I haven't even started on the other two finishes.
This is what it will look like once it's all together. I went with an upholstery trim to match the linen. I did go online Sunday evening and I ordered more trim from Joann.com but I'm afraid now that the three yards of trim I ordered will come in 3 - one yard pieces rather than one large piece like I want.
I did managed one finish - my strawberry emery from It's Berry Time. It turned out really cute. I'll try to get a better photo later in the week. It was after 9:00pm by the time I was finished and was too tired to work on it.
I'll get back to finishing the others on Wednesday since tonight is agility with the pugs. I also didn't put a stitch in my Houses of Hawk Run Hollow since I was still working on stitching Autumn Bouquet and then I had to finish stitching my strawberry. I wasn't finished with those until Sunday. I did start stitching on the new Loose Feathers, Summer Basket this morning but I don't have much to share because I fell asleep on the train about 15 minutes after it left my station and didn't wake up until I got to Chicago. :-) I plan on doing the sampler and the thread keeper but I might make the thread keeper into a pin holder as I don't own an eyelet maker and don't plan on purchasing one at the present time.
