Pillow Parade

Those fabulous, creative, diet coke loving sisters Kari & Kijsa, are sponsoring a Pillow Parade today. It sounded like fun so I decided to march along and showcase a few of my fluffy creations.
I made this embroidered rose pillow last year.
Stuffed with a down insert and topped with green velvet trim, it feels so good to hold while on the couch watching TV.


These little hearts, you may remember, went to my son's teachers this year for Valentine's Day.



I did not make this lovely ribbon embroidered pillow. My Mama gave this to me when I became pregnant with my son. After a very long and difficult battle with infertility, this summed it up perfectly.
I hope you enjoy viewing all of the wonderful pillow creations along the parade route. But be careful, you may wind up with a terrible case of crafting fever and decide to join in the march yourself~ Rhonda

You have an absolutely adorable blog (love the eye candy and the music), and I love your pillows! They are all so cute, and I'm impressed that you made the first ones. But that third is equally cute and equally special! Thanks for sharing...

What lovely pillows you have! I'm so glad to meet another gal who likes to embroidery! Oh, you said you had the second Rooster design like mine. You know what I did? I saw this on the internet and copied and just drew it off to embroider. I hope that's legal! :) Please don't tell on me! :0
Thanks for popping in and come back to see me sometimes.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
