Coffee Pillows

I decided to make a couple pillows with some of the leftover squares from my Bistro Layer Cake. I got out "Love My Coffee" by Lizzie Kate and "Caffe Latte" by LHN. Bradley (my nine year old) helped me pick out the fabric for both of these! He has a good eye for color.

I also worked on my Sampler Stocking a little bit. I have been working on it exclusively - I really want to get it finished up soon!
