Original Design



This is a pulled thread pillow I designed & stitched. I used 19 count cork linen & stitched with crochet cotton (DMC 30-cordonnet) and DMC perle cotton. The finished size is about 11 1/4" x 11 1/4".

I took an EGA Course on pulled thread. Learned many stitches! At last, I have finished my original design into a pillow.

Oh my! You're so talented! It's gorgeous! And your finishings are so... finished! lol!!! That's one of my many weaknesses, though I'm trying hard, so I appreciate good work when I see it! Well done, Lelia!

Wow, Lee, it looks fantastic! You can up with a wonderful design and your finish is impeccable. Now, where are you keeping it? I'd be afraid that it would get dirty. Congrats on the finish!

Have a wonderful holiday weekend! I'm looking forward to the time away from work. Are the kids working? I hope you are able to relax and stitch. :)

What an accomplishment!! I enjoy pulled thread stitching very much. Sometimes I think I might be pulling too tightly, working out some stress I think, hehe!

Oh Lelia, your latest bout of finishing is an absolute joy to see - a feast for the eyes! That's the second blog today where you've been having finishing frenzies ... do you think if I sit here long enough, it'll rub off on me? haha - OK, maybe not ... Seriously though, everything looks wonderful! :) And thanks for the link to Beadlust - WOW! Yet another blog to add to the ever-growing list to drool over ... ;)
