First of all is this pillow that I made to replace the Hopeful Hexagons Pillow that I decided to give away. Since I have a wierd quirk that renders me completely incapable of ever making more than one item exactly the same, this one is squares.
If you think this pillow looks a little flat and empty-looking, you're not mistaken.
When we got married, my husband came with a well worn cushion adorned with cows and a barn in faded burgundy and cream. In all it's ruffly faded goodness, it stayed around here for almost seven years only because of it's single virtue of being soft and flat and perfect for napping on the couch. I finally decided it must go, but wisely kept the old insert and made this new one to fit with lots of room so it feels well-used and so soft. The family has deemed it the right feel and shape so I think it's here to stay!
Here's a gift we received in a generic grab box at Christmas time.
I don't know about you, but I'm almost tired of being told to "LIVE LOVE LAUGH", etc. but I thought the black frame had potential, so I spent about an hour and made something that's more 'me'.
I used my favorite Hope Valley print (LOVE this bright green) and used permanent ink to write the verse on Kona Cotton.
Now on to my giveaway. Thanks so much for each of you that took the time to comment. I was surprise that the majority of you liked the rocking chair picture the best. I'll need to look into perfecting the lighting in that corner. Now the random number man chose # 39, Tracy. I'll be contacting you.
