Here’s the pillow front. I haven’t done the back yet. I’m not really happy with how you can see the white embroidery thread I used to join the squares. You would have been able to see it no matter what color I used so I’m not sure exactly how to remedy that. Even using yarn would have shown. It’s the joined corners where it looks messy. You can see it better in the closer picture below.
I wish I had kept trying to sew them together with their tail ends now. I think that’s the only way they wouldn’t be visible. Michelle knows what she’s talking about and I should have stuck with that method. With it looking the way it does, I would not feel comfortable selling it or even giving it away. I think something should be the best you can make it in order to do that, and this definitely is not my best. You do have to get up close and examine it to see the flaws in workmanship though. I’ll have to think about this. It took me TWO HOURS to sew it together last night, but I may take it apart and try crocheting them together. At least it would look neater. I may not even have to take it apart to do that…I could just crochet over the seams. Hmm…
It’s still pretty though, and it was fun to make. Again, you can find the pattern tutorial at The Royal Sister’s.

Somehow I ended up with two copies of Crochet! Magazine, July 2010. If you want it, I’ll send it to you. The first to leave a comment on this post can have it.
OR…You could choose this:
I have all five parts (several pages each) of the Meet the Noggins series of patterns from Crochet! Magazine. I ripped the pages out of the five issues this came in. Again, leave me a comment on this post if you want them. The first one to respond gets it. Please pick one or the other. I’d like two different people to have these mini prizes.
OR…Who wants this:
Ha-ha-ha! Just kidding! I’m not giving up yet, but it’s NOT going well.
That’s all for today. I have work to do, which I’m putting off by goofing around here. I need to run to the store and get some chicken breasts too. That will be my excitement for the day.
