Look at this beautiful pillow, handmade by Nicole for M on her birthday:

Not only does it look terrific (complementary but not matchy) on the bed, but it is excellently constructed. And, unbelievably, this is N's first try at sewing!

Thank you N, for this lovely keepsake!


  1. that is PERFECT!!!! what a super gift1 love it.

  2. I love a mismatch...if N's as good as you say, then Imelda's got a machine and a bowl of gruel with his/her name written all over it.

  3. Thanks everyone! I'm sure Nicole appreciates the comments.

    Mattie: You're going to have to offer a little more than gruel! Maybe a nice pair of cast-off shoes? :-)

    GT: It really is!

    Ambika: Coming from you - sewer extraordinaire - that's high praise!

  4. ooohhh.. I love the paisley....
