This week I thought of finishing up a quilt, but I ended up wrapped up with a sick kid for half of the week, so I didn’t have much time in my sewing room. But I did cross-stitch a bit more than usual. So that was nice too. 

Last weekend I also spent time putting wallpaper in our little pantry at home where I spend time making coffee in the morning. So, I thought that it would be time for me to finish up a recent cross-stitch finish to put up too. I finished this piece earlier this year which I talked about in Flosstube #3 HERE. I wanted it to be put up in this pantry that I just recently revamped. The chart is by Brenda Gervais With Thy Needle & Thread, But Coffee First .

The cross-stitch piece was stitched on 32-count french mocha linen and the called-for overdyed flosses. 

I made the pillow with a simple gingham backing fabric form Cozy-Up collectionThe minty green blue colour matches the lady’s dress. I sewed in the twisted cotton rope to hang the pillow and stuffed the pillow with polyster fill. 

Since I left the seam open for turning the pillow casing and for filling in, I had to hand sew the closure. I think next time I am going to try and slit open from the backing instead as that will be much neater and will be so much easier to fill up the corners. 

So here’s my But First Coffee Pillow in my new fresh pantry!

Well, I do love the final finish and now I can enjoy it every day as I make my coffee! You are going to see more cross-stitching here on my blog as I am loving this new adventure and the Flosstube Community! It is as addictive as quilting and I just enjoy it so much.

I think I want to hang it here. I’ll put a nail up here to make sure it stays. 

I am a coffee lover and I love my morning coffee! How about you? Tea or Coffee?

Well, now it’s your turn to link up a photo or your blog via In-Linkz below, and let’s celebrate together!!
