Lavender Pillows

This is my very first foray into stitching freehand. I had found a long lost pattern for lavender that was buried deep in my room (I knew it was around somewhere). I was in a strange mood when I started this - I had just come in from a shopping trip bordering on heat exhaustion a couple of weeks ago, went upstairs, grabbed a pillowcase and sat down with my pattern and my threads. I hadn't planned it at all, in fact I had searched for the pattern and bought the threads to make lavender sachet bags to sell. Perhaps the act of planning things out bores me when making things...

Of course it isn't quite finished yet - but I'm pretty proud of the way it's turned out for my first attempt!
