A neighbor on our street invites everyone to a "Canada Day Pig Roast" they don'e expect anything but I like to make a little something. I was playing around with the word Lake and this is what I came up with, I thought it fit them to a Tee. You may not be able to see but I embroidered a background of light blue birds to create a fabric. I love doing something unexpected on the back ! I covered their house numbers.

The font was from Hang to Dry I went looking and couldn't even find it on the site it's call Script Font, was a Friday special with an applique. The line bird squares I have no idea?
Oh well , thanks for looking.

At first I though the birds were the fabric, till I looked closer and read what you did. Love the pillow, great job. Thank you for sharing.
Happy Stitching :~)

I love your work on this pillow. The idea to use continuous line embroidery behind the writing is striking. Thanks for sharing this with us.
