Pennies and Lace by Mrs. M

I have the sweetest blogging friend; 
her name is Mrs. Micawber aka Sue and you can find her here.

She painstakingly publishes the most detailed and easy to follow tutorials on her blog.

This time she has really outdone herself with a C.A.L. of sorts,
(part 1 starts here with links for the other parts here too.) 
and here it is a'la Astri:
And get this: it's now the back of the
"Brød Oppvarming Klut"
pillow from this post:

It started with "pennies":
Then continued with "lace":
Then a little "trim" around the edges:
Put it all together:
Turn the pillow over:
Sew it on:
And there you have it; 
the mighty reversible (according to the mood)
 kitchen sofa pillow with
"Pennies and Lace"
and, by golly, I love it!
Thank you, Sue!!!

  7. It looks great! And you're right about the "CAL" - by the time I finished the tutorials I realized I already had what amounted to a CAL on my hands, so I left it at that. (Also could not get my camera to film to my liking.)

    I do love that bread warming cloth, and feel very honoured that my pattern was deemed worthy to be paired with it. :)

    Thanks so much for the shout out.

  8. By golly I love it too! You did a great job. And, of course, the colors and the pattern are so you! Looks easy enough. Maybe even I can figure it out. Have a great day! Tammy
