Kaleidoscope Pillow

I finally sewed my Ink Circles Kaleidoscope into a pillow and I am very happy with the result.Back in April at the Cataraqui Guild Needle Arts Fair, Dani convinced me that my plan to back it with plain black was pretty boring so we found this great fabric for the back. It reminds me of the Northern Lights, although I don't know why because I have never seen the Northern Lights in colour but apparently, according to pictures I have seen, they do look like this. I have seen white Northern Lights dancing across the sky and can only imagine how fabulous the sight must be when they are coloured. Our garden continues to be a delight. We have peppers and tomatoes growing daily. I can hardly wait till they are ready to eat! The beans and peas have not sprouted into recognizable vegetables yet and of course I can't see the potatoes or onions but I have faith that they too will produce!

I have the new Lizzie Kate Christmas flip-its chart in...well the first two charts ...and the WDW thread that is called for...I am looking forward to starting it...perhaps with the Piecemaker needles that the shop also now has is stock...

Wonderful pillow finish, and excellent choice for the backing fabric. Your garden is growing by leaps and bounds...a few more weeks and you will be overrun with homegrown veggies.

The pillow is Fabulous...I'm impressed!
The colour is just right.

Looks like we'll be having tomatoes for our snack soon...lol.

I'll pick up my Lizzie Kate today!

The pillow looks fabulous...I look forward to seeing it in person in August.
Fresh veggies are the best, especially when you have grown them yourself!
I saw your sneeky way of putting in there that you have my ALL-TIME FAVOURTIE needles in stock now :-) Once I've stitched my way through the WHOLE box my aunt brought me back from her vacation in the US, I'll be sure to know where to get more.

Your pillow is gorgeous. I love the fabric you used for the back. I also like the bag you are stitching. I bought some fabric in that color for a future wip.
