I made this 12x 16 in pillow for my friend. It was a hand made needle point project and had been mounted on a board ready to frame. I carefully pulled it off the board and trimmed the edges away. I used a 12 x 16 in pillow form and added the neutral cording. She was so happy, because she can now use it. Kay

It's a beautiful pillow. You did a great job. I think I'd be so nervous I couldn't spit if I worked on something that had this many hours in it. You deserve the badge of Courage.

We eat once a week at an old railroad station turned into a great place . Every time I go in there I think a hundred years back or more.

Splendid idea.A much more useful way of using & displaying hours & hours of work.This cushion can now fit into any home.

I enjoyed doing needlework before buying an embroidery machine and a very few works of mine are in the "to be used" trunk.
What a smart idea, I am inspired by your lovely pillow.
Hug, Roberta

I think she had had the needle work for a long time and I was glad to make it usable. Kay
