for my christmas swap the main item I made was this pillow.  I have always loved the island of misfit toys from Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer.

I cross stitched the words in five colours, cut it out and sewed it into a pieced pillow with some fun green and red fabric I had.  I have just learned to sew so the piecing was a bit of a challenge, and the gap at the back yawns open, still from the front I am super happy with how it turned out.  And my swap partner liked it too!

Inspiration without application is moot.

I love the use of multiple colors. It looks like it could have come from the Island of Misfit toys with all of the happy bright colors.

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