I just finished these last night and was horribly impatient for the sun to come out this morning so I could take pictures.  These have to be my absolute favorite craft to-date.  And even better?  I designed them myself Smiley pat on the back



I made the first one for a Designers Challenge over on Ravelry (ends today ... nothing like cutting it close!)  I made the pillow cover as two separate panels, seamed at the top with buttoned openings on the sides to make it super-easy to pull the pillow form out for washing.



For the back I ended up making a simple ribbed pattern.

I had so much fun making the first pillow that I had additional ideas I wanted to try, so here is the second pillow.



This one has a better feel to it - the vertical stripes in between accent the cables.  



Again, a fairly simple pattern for the back.

The second pattern is definitely my favorite.  I'd love to make one or two more ... but I think hubby might feel overwhelmed by all the new pillows in the house  Cheesy

These are nifty, and I love the buttons!

They make me envision curling up with a good book and a big mug of cocoa....

These are super cute, and a fun way to try out some new stitches.  Like giant swatches, but with a practical use afterwards.  And the buttons are so fun.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Buttons were hard to find for the blue pillow. There are 24 of them ... more than I had in my stash of any one kind.  I thought about doing mis-matched white ones but I didn't even have enough of those in the same size!
