DAFFODIL DAZE PILLOW

I just finished this little spring pillow using a pattern by "On Pins and Needles".
Hard to see in my picture but it is two little chicks carrying some daffodils.  I purchased the background fabric for the embroidery and the rickrack.  All else was from stash.  I think the rickrack the local quilt shop had was a bit too wide but I made it work.  It just didn't make the best corners on the pillow.  But it's done and I am happy.

Thanks to Kyle of "Timeless Reflections" blog for inspiring me.

It's adorable!. . . & I think you handled the corners & the wide rick-rack beautifully! (I too, always feel like I'm in a mini wrestling match when dealing with rick-rack & corners!) xo, Bren

The pillow is really pretty. You did a fantastic job on it. The ric-rac is difficult to turn the corners, but it seems you did an excellent job of it :)
