Two....two spiral pillows....ah ha ha........


So now half of the dining room chairs have a pillow cushion! Last night I finished another spiral pillow, and today's weather is gray, so my pictures are not the best. The first 3 photos show the front of the pillow, and none of them are really true to color. Reality lives somewhere between the light and dark shots.


Having 2 pillows completed has made me really want to do the rest. And won't it be nice to say goodbye to the pillow forms taking up room in the closet!! Must focus on the incentives of finishing up this big project........


I didn't put very much effort into the back of this one. Just one color for the spiral, another color for the surface embellishment. For the first one, I did a 3 color spiral with 3 more colors for embellishment, and it was way too much work for the back of a pillow.


The 3rd pillow should be coming fairly soon. I've already made the back spiral, it's just a matter of assembling the small spirals for the front (which I've also already made) and working the surface embellishment. Shouldn't take too long, right?
