I Finally Made Something Black and White

I've been in this black and white challenge ever since it started and I finally made something black and white! Woo Hoo!

My rocking chair on my front porch was looking a little lonely and needed something bright and cheerful to greet my guests and anyone driving by.

I think my little monogrammed pillow was the perfect thing! I used a green and white polka dot for the pillow cover and a black and white mini-polka dot for the monogram. I machine appliqued it in black thread using the satin stich.

I hope to have a tutorial on my blog , soon, on how to make your own. I'll let you know when I do.
