Kelli, I am so glad the pillow made it all the way to you. I was a bit worried that it got lost in the mail.

How pretty. At first I thought it was old. How nice she made it for you.
Thanks for sharing,
what a beautiful pillow..
I remember when I was much younger, I used to do some needle work similar to that but not nearly so fancy in the stitch work. It's beautiful and you do a great job. I would be proud of that myself. Thanks for show and telling.
What a sweet pillow! It reminds me alot of a quilt my great-grandma had when I was young...I adored it and her.
Thanks for sharing!
Your pillow brings back memories of when I was a little girl learning how to embroidery from my Grandmother. This is just lovely.
Your coffee tag tutorial was really special...I will do this.
Happy Spring, Mary
