Two Special Pillows

March has been a busy month and I am excited that I was able to complete a  couple of the pillows I had planned for my goal this month.  I made these two pillows for two sweet friends and I plan to give them to them this weekend.  The designs were intended for a quilt and the quilt would have been a beautiful.  I decided to make several different projects instead.  I am happy that I can share these embroideries and verses with several different people.

The sun showed itself today so it was a little easier to get a clear picture.

These designs were created by Jennifer Reynolds of Jenny of Elefantz.  Visit her blog and you will be inspired by her designs and  her testimony.  I have stitched many of her designs and I am a part of her monthly Stitchery Club.  If you love to embroider be sure to visit her website and sign up, don't miss out.

March Project Plans

I have so many projects that I would love to finish but there have been many distractions this past month.  We had some water come in to our basement apartment,  The water made it necessary to take up carpet and flooring.  My sewing room had to be completely emptied.  As we were packing I set what I could aside and I have just a few projects available to work on.  Most of my fabrics and unfinished projects are packed safely in plastic tubs but are not so easy to get to.  

Below I have pictures of four blocks from and inspirational quilt that I have been working on for some time.  The designs were created as a block of the month by Jennifer Reynolds of Jenny of Elefantz.

The blocks have been folded in a project bag and will look much better when pressed and the pillow cover is complete.

Many of my favorite bible verses were used in these designs.  I was planning to complete all of the blocks and make a quilt but decided to share these with several of my friends.  I plan to make at least two pillow covers this month for some special ladies I know.  I hope to use all of the completed blocks in projects and that would be even better.  I look forward to working with these embroideries to make some special gifts for some special people in my life.
