First finished project of the year!

Whew! This pillow is my first finished crafty project for the year! It was inspired by a pillow I saw on , a very mod needlepoint, named Bargello Diamonds. Well, knowing that my wonderful husband Greg would not allow us to purchase a pillow for $110, I decided I would try and make a close copy. I used plastic canvas instead of needlepoint canvas for the front, to make it easier. The back of the pillow is brown wool felt and I attached the two pieces together with brown yarn using the blanket stitch. The finished size is 6x6. Enjoy!
