All is Calm is our second June release and continues the Christmas theme.
This little pillow and ornament duo is a quick, fun stitch. Stitched with Gentle Art Sampler Threads Simply Wool which gives a lovely soft texture to the stitches.

Fibers Gentle Art Sampler Threads Simply Wool (GASW)Chives, Faded Rose, Old Red Paint, Chalk, Honeydew

I stuffed the pillow with cedar sawdust, so it not only has a nice, firm feel to it - it smells good!
The little tree cloche ornament is finished using the same method as my Wooly Fobs Finishing Tutorial. You can download a free template for the ornament by clicking the button below:

I'm Robin, the designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
