Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

stormy sky

We have been having much needed rain in our area. The sky looks ominous at times with the dark clouds traveling towards Mi Ranchito.



This pillow started as a donation for my daughter’s fund raiser. Well, the fund raiser was cancelled, but that’s ok because I can use it at my craft shows.

I made  it with  some Mexican textile fabric that I had in my stash.


As decoration for the front of the pillow I made some felt flowers on my Go Baby accuquilt machine.

Loving bright colors,  I chose pinks and reds with lime green leaves, and I machine embroidered them onto the fabric.

I added some vintage yellow buttons to the center of the flowers.

Wanting to add some more pizazz to it I added pom pom trim all around the pillow.

It was easy and fun to make except that the textile fabric  did tend to unravel  along the edges as I worked with it.

A few weeks ago at Mi Ranchito we had the most gorgeous, magical pink sky.
