The pillow is one of my favorite thrift store finds ever! It is just a cotton print, but something about it is just so great! It even has little moths on it:



It's one of my lifetime long-shot thrift goals to find a matching one.

Wow!  I wish I'd known I had such great color-matching skills!  *grin*

I'm so glad you like them and you're very welcome.  Aside from my slow pace, they were tremendously fun to do.  (My youngest cat has commissioned his OWN Nautie -- he kept sneaking up and trying to steal *yours*.)

I'm also really glad they arrived safely!  I've been mail-paranoid, lately, for some reason.

I'm beet, beet red at the moment, Ms. Alwaysinmyroom.

Jodi, your afgan is stunning and the little guys look very at home there.  And it took every ounce of willpower I could summon NOT to open the book and peer inside.  (It comes shrink-wrapped.)

Again, Happy Birthday!!  Smiley

Aw, your cats seem very fond of knitted things! Luckily for them they are in residence with a very talented knitter!

The book is beautiful inside; it's Jean Holabird's rendering of Nabokov's alphabet (Nabokov had synaesthesia). Since you resisted the urge to peek, here are some pictures:




The pages are different lengths, making a rainbow


One of the letters

I'm so excited about it!
