Hey Danynn!! Just wanted to tell you that I sent a link to your Dr. Horrible pillow to Neil Patrick Harris over twitter! Cheesy Thought he might want to see your awesome talent. Smiley

I received from fiddlegirl8 today, a whole day earlier than she anticipated! My jaw just about hit the ground when I opened the package. I was really blown away by her work. Not just the choice of fabrics or subject matter, but the QUALITY. Her enclosed note (with a map of her home state, Kansas! How cool!!) said her favorite craft was quilting, and I can *definitely* tell. I know the crafting community is pretty supportive and positive, but I don't GUSH without genuinely meaning it. And this? Gush-worthy. Seriously. See for yourselves.


How adorable is this pillow?! She told me the block is called "Dutchman's puzzle". DAMN she's a great quilter!

Another view so you can get a better look at the fabric she chose. So me!

Not to freak her out or anything, but one of the things I noticed right away was how perfect her stitching on the binded-edge envelope flap. I've never been able to get my binding that perfectly stitched. Damn, fiddlegirl8, you are GOOD!!

Not just husky approved, DOUBLE husky approved! That's when you know it's truly amazing.

Both HSG and fiddlegirl8 have exploded my brain and made this officially the most awesome swap ever. I only hope they'll enjoy the pillow covers I sent them half as much as I love theirs! Thank you, you guys. Really. This has been the worst couple of years ever, and having beautiful hand-made pillows I will look at every day make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Thank you more than you will ever know. Smiley

That is a great ruffled pillow from HSG!  If it's husky approved, it HAS to be good!

That's what I'm screamin'! Because everyone knows huskies have IMPECCABLE taste. Wink

I received today from HSG, and I'm beyond over-the-moon! Definitely the best swap item I've ever gotten. Hands-down. She ran with my blue/red theme, picked up on my love of vintage, and she said "also wanted it to be somewhat sophisticated, because you seem to be that also". BWAHAHAHAH!! I had to laugh at that one, because sophisticated is about the last word I would use to describe myself. But the result speaks for itself, because this pillow is AWESOME! The buttons she used belonged to her grandmother, so this is definitely VERY cherished. Really, HSG, that meant a lot to me. Thank you.



The back of the pillow, with the wonderful vintage buttons! Cheesy

One of my favorite details...the red bias tape on the edge of the closure!! LOVELOVELOVELOVELOV E!!

Yup. This will be a permanent fixture on my bed.

Husky tested, husky approved.

Thank you SO SO MUCH HSG, I truly love it to bits. Cheesy

Edited to add: I also wanted to mention the edge of the button hole panel. HSG, I absolutely love how you used the minty/aqua green in the lining, and the way it came up to the buttonhole edge makes it look like piping. Super fancy and nice. Well done!! I'm truly honored to own this pillow. Smiley

Why, thank you! I look at it every day and think "I made that?! REALLY?!" LOL - it'll be hard to top.

Seeing the crafters signed up for this swap has my eyes googling out of my head. This swap is going to be AMAZING!

I would LOVE a crocheted cushion, or a yo-yo cushion! Linda, you do such amazing work!
