My Latest Pin Pillow Finish

Here is my latest pin pillow finish, it also has the honor of being my first piece using silk threads. BIG mistake on my part, because I just adored using them and now I want more. Oh well, maybe some day.

This is the front.
This is the back.
Design: Quaker Heart (Freebie from Piecemakers) I changed the design around quite a bit again.
Stitched on 28ct. white linen from Zweigart using Caron Waterlilies in Pistachio Nut and Kreinik Silk Mori.

This wil be sent to my Mama for Mother's Day along with a pillow that I'm working on.

I'm close to finishing two other pieces and will post photos when I'm done.

I just want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments that you leave for me, they mean so very much and keep me stitching.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitching To All
Hugs .... Sandy


  1. Sandy-that's just BEEutiful :) Congratulations :)

  2. This is really nice and I like the colors you chose! I don't like working with silk myself. I have a tendancy to catch the fine little fibers on rough spots and my hands and they keep getting yanked out of the needle. Regular floss doesne't seem to do that nearly as much. I think your mom will really like the little heart.Again , nice job!

  3. This is just beautiful, Sandy - great job!

  4. So pretty. The subtle palette of silk threads are just gorgeous.

  5. Pretty finish Sandy, look forward to seeing your pillow.

  6. Great finish. I sure know what you mean about using silk threads.

  7. I love the colors. Very Beautiful.
    Getting my hands conditioned before I try stitching with silks. lol

  8. Gorgeous finish , I'm sure it will be cherished . X

  9. Very pretty!
    I too crave to stitch with silks after trying them.

  10. So beautiful. I just finished a small pillow using silks and I'm hooked, can't wait to use them again.


  11. Just lovely! What a special gift. You did a great job!

  12. Beautiful! I'm sure your Mom will just love them both!

  13. This is beautiful. Aren't silk threads the best?

  14. That is very pretty.


  15. Those silks are beautiful. They're addictive, too! Lovely finish.

  16. I love this little pillow design.
    Well Done! Do you have the link for this freebie chart? I've searched the internet, and cannot find it. Maybe you could steer me in the right direction.
    Thanks in advance, Happy Stitching!
    hugs, Karen
