Early Work Mercantile Update

It's always a good day when I dig through my wool stash and find just the snippet I need! Below is the completed Tulip Sampler Pillow. I changed the colors on a Blackbird Designs piece and then decided I needed to add a wool accent. If I was smart I would have picked the wool first and then keyed the floss colors to match, but luckily it all worked out to my satisfaction.
This past week has been a little discouraging as I've been hit by a cold virus that really left me feeling drained. I don't like being home and not feeling up to doing anything, but at least if I have to lay around I have a couple of warm kitties to snuggle with!
