I am so enjoying my time off from work! So much that I was inspired to.... work! ;) As you well know from my past posts, I can't stay idle, not even when I'm taking a break. While sitting with Roger in the evenings and watching tv, I have been doing some simple needlework. When it's not a rushed thing, I find handwork very relaxing.

Silk ribbon hearts and cotton French knots on linen made into sweet accent pillows...

They have been sewn up into small accent pillows and tonight I will stuff them and sew on the trim.

I have taken pics and have listed them for anyone who is interested in them.
The pillows are now listed on my Honeysuckle Lane website with buy now PayPal buttons.

Enjoying the rest of 2011...

P.S. My 30% off Etsy shop sales end Saturday night! Visit this page to read about the sales at Simple Joys Paperie and Honeysuckle Lane.

  4. Lana,
    They are so pretty! I'm wishing I knew how to do that, though I probably wouldn't! Going to check them out now!
    Happy Weekend!

  5. Your stitching is just lovely. I find handwork is a great stress reliever for me as well and always enjoy it.
