- Mark Twain, a Biography
I think I truly believe this. Back to the whole Pinterest thing: the reason I love it so much is the images that become a part of my mental kaleidoscope. I think I may have become just a copy-cat, not even making new combinations. The bottom shot is from Earth Cadets, and it is a $65, hand screen-printed pillow. The top shot is my version, Cherrywood hand-dyed cotton appliqued to a heavy linen canvas. There is a zipper in the back for easy removal. I am seeing arrows and feathers all over the place, aren't you? Love the modern graphics of arrows and the positive feeling - pointing you in the direction you need to go. A road map of sorts. Don't Look Back.

Obviously, her photography skills are a touch above mine - my heart pincushion is in the top photo. I digitized the embroidery on the Bernina V7 software (I am still getting used to the new version). I filled it with crushed walnut shells, which gives it a perfect pincushiony feel. I think the ribbon I used, the tape measure ribbon, is so cute. I have used it many times - around the base of my lampshade here at my desk, and on the hem of a handtowel in the studio bath. Perfect Valentine's Day gift for someone. Jerilynn
