Earlier this week, I finished up the Contentment pillow (design by Jenny of Elefantz) that was a birthday gift for my teaching partner and friend.
She liked it!
Here's a peek at the back, too. This is a favorite floral from Joann's that I used as the backing for Follow the Garden Path.
Meanwhile for evening slow stitching, I've continued making hexie flowers, and a pretty garden is developing there, too!
For today's slow stitching I'm going to work on a purple flower.
My phone camera sees this as blue, but it's really a very pretty dark purple!
Happy Mother's Day to you! At my mom's place they are celebrating Mother's and Daughter's Day, because we may not all be mothers, but we are certainly all daughters! After lunch we're going to pick my mom up and take her out for ice cream. Yum!

Such nice gifts for your friend! The hexie flower garden is growing! Happy Mother’s Day!
Love the pillows and what a pretty garden you are creating. Enjoy the ice cream with Mom today!
Congrats on finishing up those pretty pillows, Diann! I really like your idea of taking your Mom out for ice cream. Hmm... I wonder if I can convince my guys to take me out for ice cream? Sounds like a delicious idea!
Enjoy your mother/daughter celebration. I like those pillows and your hexie flower garden is growing beautifully.
Pretty rosetas, Diann. EPP is a great stitching work for watching TV time.
Enjoy your day and Happy Mother's day to you and your Mom.
I always find it amazing how colors take on a mind of their own - the one you say is purple is blue on my screen - isn't that weird! enjoy your day
Such pretty pillows! The hexie flowers look great too!
Your pillows are beautiful! That backing is very pretty. Enjoy your ice cream and Happy Mother's Day!
I'm sure your pillow will make your friend very happy! Those little hexie flowers are so pretty!
I like that - Mothers and Daughters celebration! Your pillows turned out great and should be well loved. Hexies are fun to see them bloom - keep us posted!
Your flower garden is growing nicely, do you have a plan for them, or just enjoying making them! And your pillows are adorable.
I'm spending the day watching USFL football, and experimenting in the kitchen. I'm not a mother, and I lost mine over 10 years ago, but today I remember her and still miss her.
That's the sort of floral to buy a bolt of. Lovely projects. Glad you enjoyed Mother's Day with your mom.
