Hey-lo everybody! Its been awhile since I've posted any new pillows (in short, my life went insane and therefore I went with it!) Aaaaaanyway, I wanted to share this newest creation! I'm still working on the back, but I'm very happy with how the front turned out. I took a picture of my boyfriend's chest tattoo and turned it into a pattern for a medium sized throw pillow. Sorry the picture is a little tough to see, its black on dark green. IRL its fairly easy on the eyes. I'm hoping to do some other color work with Tunisian once I get a new set of hooks and wrap my brain around how its all done. Let me know what you think of this beauty!

I like your boyfriend's chest!  Grin Just kidding. I can kinda make out the pattern on your pillow. It looks like you captured the design nicely. It is amazing how many members have camera troubles here. I hope I don't have that problem when I finally get mine installed in this crazy frustrating box. The lighting in my house is horrible. I will probably have to fix that, too. But nice to see that the insanity for you as eased up, and glad you are crafting again.
