I would have never thought to make it into a pillow. And yet, there it is so right. The fabrics you chose really accentuate the piece. Just lovely.


o I love it Charlotte! (and I bet Mom did too)


what a treasure, the pillows and your family.


OMG it is just delicious!

Those are cute, stunning, beautiful...I love them. Truly.


Oh Charlotte! It's so charming and your mother will love it so! I just about wept reading your lovely post about your day out with your mommy. What a day you had, filled with sweet memories in the making.

Hope this finds you and your dear ones well and happy!



The pillow turned out soooo nice. I just love the stitching--- I'm working on mine but glad you are so far ahead so that that I can "steal" some ideas. Your story about the lamb outing and your mom---- and pushing the wheelchair---oh my!!!! it brings a wonderful tear to my eye ------ just precious!!!!

I love your pillow! The thread colors and the fabric are such a happy combination and the barney park stitching pattern always makes me smile. It's just beautiful!


Just perfect. The fabrics are just right...lovely, but leave the little house the focus. Too, too sweet!


That pillow is so cute! I just finished my sampler and was trying to think of a way to gift it to my mom for her housewarming party. I think I just found my way! Thanks again for the super creative ideas! Can't wait to get this one together for her.
