Showing Off my Fluffy Side

Hello, Dear Ones and today I'm taking part in our lovely Kari and Kijsa's Pillow Parade. If you would like to see more participants in this fluffy event, just click on the Pillow Parade button!

If you know anything about me, you know I love the Roosters, and yes that's spelled with a capital "R". I posted about this pillow and the next one in one of my very early posts. I embroidered the Roosters in Red Work and made the pillows. You will notice the fabric? It's the same as used on the decoupaged platter from yesterday's post! :)
Rooster pillow number two! I sewed on some green buttons just for fun and added the ruffled edge around both pillows in a different but coordinating fabric.
This is my latest embroidered Red Work Rooster pillow! I made this for my first ever giveaway and it went to my sweet friend Bo at Winks and Blinks From Brown Eyes!!
This little pillow is also one I blogged about last year. You see, this little piece of embroidery is very important to me. I have been embroidering since I was a child. I embroidered two pillow cases when I was around 12 or 13 and this is part of it. The pillowcase was so old, I'm very olden, and I couldn't use it anymore but I wanted to keep it. I Cut the embroidered part off and the little sweet crocheted edging made by a friend and made it into a little frilly little pillow! I'm so glad I thought to do this. I can keep a little piece of my childhood!
This is another pillow I made. I loved the silky embroidered fabric ( I think I like embroidery, don't you?) and found some matching rope trim. I have the fabric cut to make another one, but have never gotten around to it! :)
Another pillow made by me using leftover scraps of fabric!
And my last little pillow. Just a little one looking so cute.

Hope you've enjoyed my part of Kari and Kijsa's Pillow Parade!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Hands Of Time

If the hands of time were hands that I could hold,
I'd keep them warm and in my hands,
They'd not turn cold!

Hand in hand we'd choose the moments that should last,
The lovely moments that should have no future and no past!

The summer from the top of a swing,
The comfort and the sound of a lullaby,
The innocence of leaves in the spring,
But most of the moment when love first touched me!

All the happy days would never learn to fly,
Until the hands of time would choose to wave good-bye!
The innocence of leaves in the spring,
But most of the moment when love first touched me!

All the happy days would never learn to fly,
Until the hands of time would choose to wave good-bye
