Well, not really, ok, the coffee has much more dominance...

This is my first posting/project/etc. I didn't finish the 2nd one yet, where do those spare moments go?  I will post it even if I don't finish by tonight, but I just wanted to put something up here. This was a really fun project, thanks Craftsters for making me do something creative for myself!
The original artwork for the first pillow is from the painting "Exhilaration" from Angel Sarkela-Saur. Because this is my first posting, it seems I am not allowed to post the pics dirrectly, sooo:
1st pillow=

Tell me if anyone wants a closer pic.
The second pillow is defiantly a work in progress. I am hoping to finish tonight, but so much depends on if I get a seat on the train (that's when I do most of this) and if anyone puts up a fight instead of taking their bath (the other time I get the most done). The design is a spilling martini glass, as you can see from the pic, its a work in progress, but you can see where it is going by the pink pencil marks. Going to give it the same tumbling drops, with a relaxing man instead of jumping for the end. The pillow cases are the same color in real life, just WAYYY different lighting between the pics. Will do pics together when done.

I am considering putting text on them, let me know what you think, and YES, I KNOW they need to be ironed. Smiley

YOU ARE AMAZING, the shading on the coffee cup looks sooo realistic, and the drops that turn into a person is so cool, I probably wouldn't have been able to draw that much less stitch it

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
officer- "ma'am why do you have scissors in your pocket?"
drunk lady- "for arts, such as.... crafts?"

Thanks so much, you guys are awesome Smiley
Sorry, don't have a transfer, I freehanded it from the painting.
I am almost done with the 2nd one, too late for the competition I know, but I want to put it up soon anyways.

The embroidery looks really nice.
But I think the design is very original too.

Besides, I like that you used a lot of the available space.
