Butterfly Pillows for Alana

My granddaughter, Alana is turning eight this month. When I was home last I asked what she wanted for her birthday and she told me she would like some butterfly pillows. I usually work in dark fabrics, so I went on over to The Country Loft and bought some pinks and blues to use....and some wonderful wools. Above is a close up of one of the butterflies. It was such fun to stitch the detail on them...

Below are the two finished pillows.....Lots of butterflies floating around. She has butterflies all over her room....even hanging from the ceiling. She is coming with her family for a visit this weekend and I can't wait to give them to her. It will be their first visit to Portland in eight years. We have lots of fun things planned for their stay!

I hope that the sun is shining in your neighborhood...It is in Portland today!

Bye for now....Jo Ann
