What a beautiful pillow. With the lace inserts and the charming cottage design the pillow looks from the "old world era".

Hi Shirley, you've done a beautiful job on this little pillow. Well done on the colours - it looks so inviting as if you could just walk down the garden path up to the front door. Of course, the lady of the house would invite you in and you could then have a lovely cup of tea out in the beautiful garden. Love Chris

Fabulous project - you have every right to be proud!

The use of lace and this cottage in this pillow is just perfect. I don't know that I'd ever attemp a project with so many stitches. Do you know what caused your broken needles?

the cause of broken needles....inexperience, and over-enthusiasm and maybe down right stupidity to start on something like this. Today I approach things differently, lol

Hi mops, this was not my first embroidery done on the machine, it was my very first project I completed. I had many broken needles and frustrations, but in the end it turned out well. I was planning to make a set but this one was quite enough, hugs S*
