I think I got the pattern for this from someone on here, it might've been at www.getcrafty.com though.  This is the design for Virgo, it's on purple flannel because that's what I had (and is so far, my favorite fabric to stitch on).  The other pattern I got was Aquarius. After stitching that on a different color of flannel, I'm going to turn the two sides of fabric into a small pillow. The embroidery is about four inches, I might add some kind of border out of fabric, ribbon, or something so it's not a teensy tiny pillow.  Smaller than a throw pillow though.

In a very simple and not too deep and profound way, it represents me and my husband.  The differences, like different colors and zodiac signs, but that it's all on the same pillow...etc.  (Told you it wasn't profound.)  How people in relationships value and respect each other's differences, the individuality of everyone but how you still connect.  Yep.  Grin

turned out great!  My partner and I are both Virgos!  I was looking for some patterns and I think I found some on some font site somewhere... I really like the idea.  it will be a cute pillow.
