Circle in Square Pillow

Hello Friends...

Some of you may remember awhile back I had started this pretty little pillow project: http://moderngracedesign.blogspot.com/2011/05/new-life-to-old-project.html.  Well, I finally finished it the other week, and was waiting for sunny weather to take some pictures.  The weather never seems to cooperate when I need to do a 'photo shoot'!

I made an envelope cushion cover out of some old drapes and hand stitched the crochet front to the front of the cushion.  This was my first time sewing a cushion cover from scratch...I must say, it was super easy, and I was quite pleased with the results.

To finish off, I did a simple little shell stitch along the edging.  On the back, I added a cute slip and chain stitch to create a frilly little delicate edging. What do you think?
