A Splash of Colour

A wanted a splash of colour to warm up our leather couch for the winter.  I received very bad delivery service from the company I bought some furniture from.  To compensate, they gave me a gift card.  I splurged on some decor items a fur throw, and two fur pillows.  To brighten it up I added three fun Christmas pillows.  All the fabric came from my stash.  Even the the trim came from my stash.  
I embroidered the pillows with designs from Embroitique.  I love their happy, modern designs.
The embroidery process was not without tears.  First the colour ran,then the tension was wrong, and the metallic thread was a nightmare.  But I am reasonably pleased with end results.

Thanks for dropping by,

Got to get back to sewing.

The cushions are gorgeous. Love the bright colours. It is a great site and all the designs stitch out perfectly. One of my new year resolutions is going to be to perfect embroidering with metallic thread.

The pink pillows with turquoise trim are so adorable! I'm sorry to hear your embroidery gave you some problems. I'm working on a little project right now, that I think you'll like :). I hope your Christmas was wonderful!
