I love three day weekends! It was a wonderful, relaxing holiday - but not a lot of stitching.
We watched "Twilight" yesterday and I confess that I found it to be very slow and boring. Sorry, I do not mean to offend the Edward fans. I just feel they could have made the movie in half the time if they had eliminated all the artsy parts. We also watched "The International" which I thought was a great movie that deserved a better ending and "State of Play" which was ok.
As I was collecting completed items to take to my LNS for framing, I found this little treasure in my drawer. I decided that I would make it into a pillow - well, that I would send it to my mom-in-love and ask her nicely if she would work her magic for me. She is an amazing seamstress!
Below is a picture of a pillow that my mil made for me. She has made 4 pillows for me (so far) and her work is amazing. She currently has three additional completed cross stitch that she is making into pillows - I can't wait to see them. My birthday is in two weeks and I am hoping she will surprise me with the pillows then!
