Lockerhooked Pillow is DONE!

I know some of you have seen the front view of this pillow but it is finally done both front and back and sewn together! I love the way this turned out.
The most interesting part of making stuff like this is getting ideas for your next project AND see what you'd do differently next time - Like making the design on the back bigger maybe using some more colored fiber!!!!!!
This project didn't take near as long to make as the rug did and I really like the way the pillow came out! I think I'm going to have to make another one.
YES, this is for sale!!!!! IF it is sold before Sept 26, 2009 it is $75.00 and $25.00 will be donated to Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. After that it will be on my website for $100.00
Also, for those of you who buy soaps. I will donate $1.00 per soap sold to LLS between now and Sept. 26, 2009.
I have a lot made and will be making lots more so get your orders in now. I have cucumber, clary sage flax, jasmine green tea, strawberries N creme, pure & basic, rosemary, lavender, and will be making tea tree oil tomorrow.

New Yarn

I have hardly spun at all since this ordeal with my daughter's cancer began so this last month I was inspired to start spinning again (oh yeah, and having my friend's LOVELY Lendrum wheel - DROOL< DROOL! has helped a ton!) . This is what I finished today. I don't have a name for it and frankly can't remember for the life of me what the multi colored stuff was - just that it had angelina in it and it might be Merino. The blue/green stuff is some BFL I ordered from Somerhill Farm - oh this is lovely stuff and I even have a project for it but at the risk of revealing a Christmas present I'll be keeping that hush hush for now......
