So, this is nothing snazzy like all of the other stuff on here, but I'm still very proud of myself. This is the first time that I've done needlework, I'm usually a strict knitter but wanted to do something different for the other half for his big 30. I wrote it out with using my own handwriting..I pretty much free formed the whole thing and used plied yarn that I just took apart.   




This got made into a small pillow for the bedroom. I knit a square and then sewed the two together and stuffed with filler.

I want to try doing this stuff again, I think it may be pretty addictive like knitting though.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
