Taking a Break

This week, I started working on a new project.
I am piecing nine, 12″ blocks to make a top for a floor pillow.
This is my first attempt at a pillow this size, 30″ X 30″.
I have finished the appliques on the pillow blocks.
Now, I am studying how to make piping, and how to add a zipper.
I might try it out on a smaller pillow for practice.
For now, I have set it aside.

In the meantime, I decided to take a break and do some basic cross stitching.
A couple of years ago, I had bought some dish towels.
Mom and I were going to work on these together.
We never got to it, so I thought today would be a good time to start.
I drew some basic patterns on the printed coffee cups.
Nothing fancy.
Just something to do while I watch my favorite movies.

I still need to draw some designs on these remaining four cups.
