I got a lot of good feed back when I announced in THIS POST that I was going to make pillows to give as Christmas gifts to my family. 

My idea is to give the folks I'm making for 2 pillows (so they can have a set) and I've picked colors that go with that person's house/personality.

I have finished my first set -- 
and these are for my Grandma:

For the first pillow 
I used THIS zig-zag pillow pattern.

For the second pillow -- I didn't use a pattern.
I just used a regular ol'granny stitch.

First set done!

I'm on to making my second set of pillows for my Aunt.
What do you think?! 
Are you making holiday gifts?
