A Gift for a Friend

One of my friends needed a gift for a co-worker and asked me to make one of my pillows for her. I was told she loved daisys so this is what I came up with. The design I stitched on pale blue 32ct. Belfast with AVAS silks. I used the words "bloom where you're planted" to make it a little more personal and I even found a pewter daisy charm. It's lined with a cotton print of a darker blue with little white daisy's on it and the ties at each end are white ribbon. I love doing these pillows because the work up really fast depending on the cross stitch design you use.
As always, Barbara
