This is my life aquatic pillow for march. I used up some Kaffe Fassett 2.5 inch squares I had. They are actually all a jade green color and the cross is hot pink and orange, but the colors dont come though on my phone. I did an orange peel stitch in the green and then echoed the cross to help it stand out.
3-9-14- I used some fabric I had from a scrap bag to finish the back and bind the pillow. I used Wendy's zipper back (of course), but I kept it pretty simple. I tried to use the camera, but the colors are still not as vivid as in person.
Not to share a sad story, but I had to put my beloved dog Baxter down yesterday. Baxter was a special needs English Bulldog that we rescued with his Brother Max(also special needs) when they were just puppies. Max didn't even live to 1 year of age. Baxter had a rough life filled with pain and lots of testing, shots, and medications, but I hope that I was able to give him at least part of the joy that he brought to me. When I got home yesterday from saying goodbye, I started sewing this pillow to try and take my mind off my sadness, however I kept thinking of him as I put it together. He always propped his head on something to help with his breathing and would have loved this little pillow. He also stuck his little pink tongue out all the time which is why I used the hot pink cross. He used to love to go out in the yard and stick his head in all the flowers and bushes, amongst other funny little things he did. I miss my little friend but I know that he is now pain free and in a happy place. I am renaming this pillow Baxter's garden. Thanks for letting me share my sewing therapy.
