A favor for my mom

So now that I've been sewing a lot more, my Mom has asked me to make something for her.
She bought a newer, bigger bed, so she needed new bedding. She found a set she loved, but it came with a bed skirt that she didn't need, and 3 25"x25" throw pillow shams that she had no pillows to use with. So she asked me to make her a few 25x25" throw pillows as well as a bolster/roll pillow, and then to chop up the bed skirt to make a sham for the bolster pillow.

I've been working on this for the last 2 days with friends visiting from OOT. I did one pillow one morning before my friends woke up. LOL. The roll pillow last night while watching biggest loser, and started the sham this morning before Jana got up.
This is what I have so far.

Here is everything

Here is the neck roll pillow(25" long, 6.5" in diameter)

This is the sham (zipper is sewn in, still have to sew on ends and trim)

and the first 25"x25" pillow

wow, this is amazing. I'm looking at the neckroll and was wondering how in the world you got my pillow. It looks exactly the way mine does with all of the lumps from stuffing it. My kids call it the kielbasa pillow because it looks like a kielbasa that we get from the international store here. I wanted to do the cover for mine as well, but my wife said it wasn't necessary and that it wouldn't look right. I think I'm going to have to have a go at it after seeing yours. Great job and love the color!
