"Home" pillow finish

When I purchased the Little House Needleworks Heart Pillow at my LNS after she got back from market, I was very surprised to find a free chart in there that was a Nashville exclusive.  I stitched this sweet design on 28ct. ant. white Cashel linen using HDF silk called Faded Glory.  I absolutely love how it stitched up.  For finishing I added some of my favorite things....blue/cream ticking, braid, buttons and a bow.  
Remember me saying that I was going to have a giveaway starting this week.  Well I will post about it on friday and this pattern will be one of the items in it.  So check back on friday to see what other goodies I come up with to celebrate Spring!
Also, I want to thank all of you ladies for your wonderful birthday wishes.  I made it thru the day and that in itself is a remarkable achievement.  Thank you all!!!
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Your finish is terrific!

Yup, it takes a bit to get used to the thought of turning 60 but brace yourself - the next milestone is being old enough for Medicare! I'm still in shock. lol
