Chocolate Covered Cherries Pillow


It's not easy to see in this scan, but this is the Chocolate Covered Cherries Pillow finished! I used brown material for the border and back. I braided the threads that I used to cross-stitch it and used that for the hanger and the bow. I am really happy with the way it turned out! I was going to give it to my mom today, but it took me longer to finish than I thought it would. Plus Mom didn't feel well today. So we are getting together tomorrow, and I will give it to her then.
DD and her BF really liked their pillows. They turned out very cute with red bows and red ribbon hangers. They both hung them on the doorknobs of the doors to their rooms.
I am starting a Precious Moments chart to send to Quilts4Kids in Australia. It's 2 girls with flowers. I'm using my new Q-Snaps, and really like them!
Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Got to go! Happy stitching!

That's really cute. I saw this pattern somewhere but can't remember where. I do remember thinking I'd gain five pounds just stitchng it. It turned our really great!
