  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

christmas pillows: how the grinch stole christmas

And here it is–the last of the Christmas presents!!  These are going to my parents–they already got their store bought gifts (in time for Christmas), but I asked for an extension on the handmade portion.  I had wanted it to arrive while it was still 2010, but they are only hitting the mail now.  They kicked my behind a little.

You know how when a gift is late you need it to be REALLY awesome?  These aren’t quite as cool as they were in my head, which is part of the reason they took me so long. But at least the backs are cute!

The Grinch was funny to make–when I finished him the first time he was the sweetest, nicest, cutest looking grinch in the world.  Nic and I had a good laugh over it!  Apparently it’s very hard to embroider MEAN.

And little Cindy Lou Who, who looks a lot like our Ellie in our eyes!

cathy - HI

Love these pillows. Just have the quiling and backing on my Cat in the Hat quilt. It came out really nice, and I am very pleased iwth it. I may just do a couple of pillows to go with the quilt.

Great job and I love the Grinch even when he is mean!!


Susie - Traci- What is that main fabric you’re using here- is it linen?

I’m having so much fun looking at all kinds of fabric- can I just say thank you in advance for all the inspiration you’re putting out there?! Thank you!

MichelleW - These are wonderful – I love the Cindy Lou Who one – I’m wanting to try more of this technique in 2011 :0)

Fran - We love these so very much! They look great with our new furniture and will be a fabulous yearly tradition!! Thanks so much–you are so talented! XXXXOOO

Kristen - These are absolutely adorable. You are so talented.
