to pack it away until next year.
Bent Creek's Christmas Mantel from 2010 has been waiting around all these years for me to figure out what to do with it. I finally make it into a pillow.
It was a mystery released bit by bit that year.
The thing was...it used Pearl Cotton #5 on a large weave fabric. I have no idea what, at this point. It was part of the kit.
That big open weave just didn't lend itself to framing. I'm sure it would look nice but it just wasn't what I wanted.
I am glad to finally have it off the work table. If I had it to do over I'd use regular DMC floss on a much higher count linen. I really don't have any interest in doing it over so it is what it is.
The quilt the pillow is on is a sneak peak at another finished project. I am participating in a blog hop later this month hosted by Cindy of Quilt Doodle Designs. I know you've seen me working away at this project but the embellishments are new. It was hard to stop adding details to the cute rows. Can't wait to see what other people did.
