vacation project. It took a few movie nights to finish it when we got back home from Sweden. At one point I thought the grey was dull and boring (about 2 years ago when some of these squares actually were made...) but now in 2012 I think the grey works fantastic with all the vivid colors.
I made granny squares with 6 rows each, joined them with slip stitches on the back and then I framed the granny squares with a few rows of trebles (UK) before I made a simple shell edging. It is hand sewn on to a pillow case with slip stitches.
Like I said in my Pillow Talk post a few days ago, you can never have to many pillows can you? :D This pillow will be a perfect color splash on our new sofa. I will always think of that wonderful summer vacation 2012 in Sweden when this pillow was hooked and brought to life. You see, that is what handmade is all about. Memories, love, passion and that every single item is unique in itself. There will NEVER be a pillow like this one. And this pillow already has history, even though it is brand new. That is amazing... Don't you agree?
And I want to take the chance to thank you all for the feed back on my Google Alert question. You are the best! I think I have figured it out now... Maybe... :D
