I finished Poodle Stripes yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to post it. Kim and Jack came with their truck and tractor to remove the pile of winter’s manure from the pasture. Then I ran off to my yoga class.
A while back someone sent me a whole box of hankies and I’ve been trying to figure out how to use them. This one with the crocheted butterfly was a natural for an Applique Pillow. I’m also intrigued by the transparency of the hankies and like to make use of it. Putting a different fabric behind the poodle made all the difference in the design. You can see it subtly peeking through, big sun flowers like the one at the top of the pillow. I felt this pillow had the quality of two worlds, dreaming and awake, although I’m not sure which is which. Poodle Stripes is sold.
