 I found these little cross stitch pieces in the local thrift store for $2.  

I thought they were so pretty and deserved better than a thrift store cast off. 
So, I bought them and brought them home.

 I decided to make little pillows out of them for my table.

One more item marked off my 'to-do' list!!

I really like how they turned out!

As soon as I get my table runner finished (another item on my 'to-do' list), my basket will be ready to go on the table!

Or, maybe before!!


  1. What great finds!I love how you finished them off too.

  2. HOw adorable Hope to see the table runner soon too..

  3. I love those little pillows, Susan! When I saw the first picture of how you made them into pillows, I was thinking, "They'd be so cute grouped in a basket!" And, voila - you did just that! Looks great.

  4. Those are so cute! Love the little details in your pillows. happy stitching...

  5. You are the most ingenious person I have met in a long time! I love the way you made the little pillows from those darling CCS squares, and then put in a pretty basket to display them. If I had done them, the pillows would have been just plain square pillows, and then I would not have figured out what to do with them after that. I must learn to think more outside the box like you do! I know the table runner plus the basket will be fantabulous!

  6. I love these! They are great bowl (well in your case basket) fillers. And I am sad to think someone took the time to make them and then they ended up lost and forlorn in the thrift shop until you came along. What a fun thing to find!

  7. The little pillows are gorgeous! Who would get rid of those? So much work went into them, but you have given them a new beautiful life!
    Hugs, Cindy

  8. What a creative way to repurpose those embroideries! The fabrics and rick rack complement them so well!

    Take care,
