My Pillow Talk Swap 4 Pillow!

I received my pillow for the Pillow Talk Swap and I LOVE it!  This was my first time participating, and I had so much fun!  This is a nice big pillow with the cutest little hand embroidered birdies in the middle.

My partner also sent an embellished dish towel, a pin cushion, and some pearl cotton. Aren't they sweet?

The pillow I made has reached its destination, but the recipient hasn't posted pictures yet... *biting my nails, hoping she liked it!*  I didn't get any finished product pictures, but it was based around this block.

I hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year, even if that meant snoozing through it!  We let the girls stay up, assuming they'd crash long before midnight and they so did not- They were raring to go well past the ball drop!  They have not made up for the lost sleep, so the alarm clock signifying the return to the daily grind is going to be very unwelcome tomorrow morning!  Good night!


  1. Love that pillow you received! Such great colors and sweet embroidery in the center. I love the borders around the center block too. I really love the block you made! Cool effect with the thin white strips around each square of logs.

  2. I spy some Amy Butler in there---the block is awesome--thinking she will love it;)


Thanks so much for visiting!!!
