Snow day finishing

I used my snow day today to do a little stitching and finishing! I seem to be stuck on the hanging pillow finish. :) Thanks to Tanya of The Sampler Girl for these lovely designs.

I can understand that you got stuck on the hanging pillows. I also love this way of finishing very much, particularly when it's a long little pillow like your two pillows. Both look so nice!
