Pillow finish

Needles work Needles play Resting here at end of day.

I stitched this some time ago and today decided to finish it off. Again I am not fully satisfied with my hand sewing, but with time I'm sure it will get better. I stitched this with Needle Necessities 1 over 1 on 28 ct. light mauve. The original pattern, by a local designer, called for some "fancy" stitches which I had a hard time with, so I improvised and gave it a personal touch.
