Without the title do you know what this is? I made it with my new found sewing desk space.

Remember this pillow? Well over the last year and half, I've really come to hate it. In the picture it looks all nice and new in shiny, but in reality, it was old and pilly. So I tore it apart, and put this monogram H on the pillow. While pulling apart the flowers I was very nervous, and wondered if I was making a huge mistake. It ended up no mistake, but perfect. I love it.
The monogram pillow idea came from, Martha Stewart September 2011 issue. I loved the spread about them, because I love monograms so much! But in true Martha form, the article is no where to be found online, only this tutorial. I found this picture so inspiring so I had to post it. I'm starting to dream up more monogram ideas based on this pillow, but who knows if I'll follow through.

My cousin just had her first baby, and in fact the first baby in their family, so everyone was obviously super excited-- the first grandkid. Since I had been with them during my others cousin's wedding. I had to make her a baby blanket, in a way to relive the fun of the wedding.

Here is my last creation/completion. It took a few months, but I love it, and so glad I spent the money collecting the alphabet in our game room. I got the idea here.
I was so pleased with myself, when I hung 24 letters and had to finish making the last two. Two friends were over and one said, oh my sister-in-law did that but, all her letters matched color scheme, it didn't quite work. But I could see where she was going with it, I love the way yours turned out.
I think mine is actually extremely chaotic in comparison to the examples, but that is me right?!
The real eyesore, is that R S U are so large all together, but I loved them all, so they stayed.
