Pillow Magic




A couple of weeks ago I showed a few lace pieces I had picked up at the market. Two were the same and were not your usual lace pieces. I wasn't sure what I would do with them.




When I purchsed my off white couch and chair for the Florida home there were to be 2 matching pillows of the same fabric just plain. Well couch arrived wih 2 cushions that had no connection to the couch. they went back and 2 more arrived with the right fabric but a cording about 1" in size that looked like it belonged on a boat. Being really upset by this time they said don't return them just get rid of them and we will order 2 more. These arrived not in the same fabric but liveable. They had large initials in the fabric. They were pretty but by this time I had brought down some needlepoint from home and didn't need them so under the couch in plastic bags went 4 pillows. (In Florida we call under the couches, beds, etc. our Florida basements>) Well I was looking for something else I had under there and pulled out the bag with the 2 lettered cushions. I had been looking at the lace pieces and put one on and really liked it. I have one sewn down and one to go but I am still knitting scarfs that have to go in the mail this weekend and hope to get one more done this week. After that I will sew on the other one.




Here are 2 pics - one of the lace pieces and one with the lace sewed or tacked if you will onto the pillow. I like the pillows now.

I can't imagine a CQer with plain white pillows!

The lace makes the pillows really beautiful. What a good idea.
