A Little Sewing

I made this pillow yesterday afternoon.



Not the embroidery.  That would have been a truly superhuman feat to have done the embroidery and sewn the pillow all in one afternoon.  Hannah did the embroidery from her own design.  She is an embroiderer extraordinaire!  It was a gift for Christmas last year (as in 2014. . .) and I promptly decided I wanted to make a pillow from it and promptly went out and bought the materials.  I not so promptly put it all together yesterday.  Not that I didn't do any sewing in the past year.  I did, but just not this.  Other things keep taking priority.

So anyway, here it is in all its glory.  The quote from Jane Austen reads, "They are much to be pitied who have not been given a taste for nature early in life."
