the most beautiful pillow in the world!

And it is mine, all mine.....My friend Laurie from buttonslace.blogspot.com made it for me....I saw that she had made Colleen, the Amazing Mrs. B a crazy quilt pillow and I asked her if she would trade me one for a pet portrait of her Bobby dog. We both had a lot of fun and mailed each other our surprises at the same time. She asked me about a theme and colors and I told her to just make what she liked and I would love it.... A few days ago I got this stunning beauty of a pillow in the mail......







She used our wedding photo to build around! Isnt it just wonderful? The stitching is amazing and it is the best keepsake ever...I cried when I saw it. You have to click on the picture so you can see all the detail. This is a pillow that I will treasure forever...I am half tempted to wrap it up and put it away for safe keeping, but I think I will show it off for a while first.
I sewed for a little bit today...it felt good. I am making a little something for my violet" giveaway....I also hemmed a pair of tiny little jeans for Ruth Anne....I caught her out in the yard doing a little rock climbing...She also is wearing a new hair do....(wig)...and the jeans and blouse I made for her.








Have a great day everyone.....

I thought I left a comment on this gorgeous pillow several days ago, but for some reason it not showing up. Also, I tried to leave you an e-mail but it bounced back. I'll try again later today, or you can e-mail me directly from my blog message. I'm so sorry. Today I will make SURE the post goes through. My computer has been on the fritz for about two weeks, or maybe it's blogger. Not sure which.

GOOD. Checked and double checked. This message took. Happy Sunday.
