i made more stuff

so yeah more pillows... sorry, but i just love making them, and I'm totally chuffed with these two, even if the ruffles one nearly broke my sewing machine, sometimes i push it to sew through a thickness too fat... but the struggle was worth it.and the chevron pillow is something i have wanted to try for ages, and its turned out really excellent, there are 28 individual rectangles of fabric pieced together to create the chevrons, and i then appliqued contrasting ribbons on top if it. this is a technique id like to turn into a gigantic quilt, they are both now in the shop....what should i make next ?... pillows maybe ?
