Pillows part two

Come on down to Crazy Erin's Throw Pillow Extravaganza!  Thanks for the pillow love on yesterday's post.  I've clearly gone round the bend for these things.  I made the new ones in less than an hour last night (again, at eleven o'clock 'cause I had a knitting date with Star Trek at ten - yes, I am that kind of dork).  The big one was my oh-my-gosh-I-can't-believe-this-turned-out-so-well pillow.  It was pieced from the front of the cardigan and has a working zipper on one side.  I like how the pieced side looks too - kind of a parallel stripey look.  The baby pillow came from a tiny quilt block was not going to have a home otherwise - mini pillow?  Why not?  I am so absurdly excited by this pillow mania - and my sewing machine is getting more of a workout than it's seen in months.  I can only say I see more of the same in my immediate future.  What with all the writing, knitting (yes, there's been a ton of that too!) and sewing going on I think I should lobby to have another few hours added to the day - you'll sign the petition won't you?

They all come together so well. Love the zipper look.
