HoE Winter House Received by Lisa S.

I heard from Lisa S. my HoE Winter House exchange arrived in her mail box. Poor Lisa, this is the second exchange she has received from me this year. The design is from Lizzie Kate. I used 28ct Winter Wind opalescent Lugana as the fabric and the recommended threads. For the finishing I backstitched around the edge and whipstitched the backing fabric on to the design. This method takes a little longer to finish, however, I love hand finishing my projects. Many thanks to Lennu for suggesting this method. I love it and will use it quite often. Here's a snap of the backing fabric.
Today I meet Diane at the Y for Silver Sneakers, finish an exchange piece, and start a new one. Who could ask for a better day? Enjoy yours!

It is such a wonderful little pillow, Becky. I really like the starry fabric you used!

I didnt' know you could "backstitch around" a cotton print--sounds difficult! I'd love to know how, though, because I also like a hand finish! This is a beautiful piece, as usual! :D
