To Pick a Pillow : :

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I shared these new pillows. I was considering then that one of them might be my entry into this months Blogger Pillow Party, but I was unsure of which one, if either? I still have the idea I original had planned to use, in my head, and now that this very busy month is almost over, I think it is there to stay for just a bit longer. So, now I just have to choose which one?
They both were created from this patchwork block.

Which was inspired by my new Chevron Patchwork Lampshade -- that I found the perfect base for and totally LOVE!

So, now I just have to choose which one? The butterfly?

Or, the patchwork flower surprise pillow? That sort of just happened into a second pillow, from the leftover patchwork block scraps.

So, now I just have to choose which one?
Hmn? Alright, I have decided on the flower -- because I love yellow, because it is so very Springy, and because it is so very different than anything else I have ever stitched up, as well as anything else already entered this month.

Yes, I pick the flower.
