Seeing Double?

I'm in love with my sewing machine
'Cause it hasn't let me down
And I fall in love with the thread that's seen
Whenever the bobbin is wound
Whenever the bobbin is wound
Whenever the bobbin is wound
(sung to Radio by Beyonce)

My sewing mojo is back and yes you are seeing double! Well, somewhat ;o) Back in February, I had stitched Dogs Leave Paw Prints by Lizzie Kate and made it into a pillow for our neighbour. Shortly afterwards, I stitched the same piece for myself with the same idea for finishing. Unfortunately that's when my sewing machine demon became apparent and it never got done >:o(

So here it is, finally finished -

I've got it sitting on the bed in the extra bedroom :o)

Now off to finish another sewing project that I had planned but for pictures of that, you'll have to wait until next time.

You've finished two very nice pieces lately. I loved the Hippity Hop pillow a lot. It is just gorgeous. And so is this little doggie pillow. Congratulations!

The perfect spot for it! Looks cute.

Oh, your pillow is so sweet, Cathey--perfect fabric for it, too. Glad to hear that your sewing mojo is back (wish mine would show its face again, soon--I have a pile of unfinished things just sitting there begging to be finished off!)...

Too cute! And another song parody for our singing pleasure. You can publish an anthology one of these days!
