For Me!?!

Pin It I got back from my little visit to OR on Monday, and this was waiting in the mail for me!

pillow talk pillow received!

I had mentioned in my little Pillow Talk Swap information email that I was working on a couch quilt in French General.

Holly, from Binkwaffle, made me the most gorgeous pillow to go with it!

made for each other

I almost cried when I opened it... it is so special to have someone you've never met go to so much work making something so gorgeous and special, and just for me. ;)


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

gorgeous pillow talk pillow

The back is pretty too.

the lovely back


In other news:

I reached 200 followers!  You know what that means... (giveaway coming soon)


AND I leave you with a little text conversation from my beloved (I think this is the first time he has texted me ever)


love your tanks for lunch

I love you too. :-)  And I love your tanks too. ;-)

Smarta**   not my fault auto complete sucks.

It made my stomach hurt I was laughing so hard.  Maybe you had to be there.

That pillow is gorgeous! All that red is so yummy. I would have nearly cried too. The first time I did a swap I got all teary because I couldn't believe someone would make something so beautiful for me.

Beautiful pillow and lucky you to have such an attentive and talented swap partner! And I can commiserate on the auto complete - my iPod does that too and it can come up with some really weird stuff!

Gorgeous cushion ( I would call the pillow you put your head on to sleep a pillow (and a cushion is what would go on the chair or sofa) what do you call that ?), and the text made me laugh too :)
