Facelift for a Pillow

new bee pillow

Sometimes a tired, old pillow needs a facelift. Sometimes we stitchers need one too but that’s another topic!

Here’s a photo of my wonderful JP Needlepoint pillow that I stitched years ago. Buster napped on it; baby Betsy crawled on it; and Chris and I lounged on it. It was time for a refresh. (Ignore the strange black spots in the lower right corner–not sure what was up with the photo. I’m also not sure why the background stitching looks so different in these two photos. It’s red Silk & Ivory not maroon!)

Do you have any pillows that are due for a facelift?

Also, Jessica Chaney, the Point of It All’s new shop manager, will be doing blog posts periodically. Look for a post from her next week! She’ll fill you in on her needlepointing history.

Happy stitching,
Susan

So True!

I just saw this picture on Facebook and started laughing:

On the one hand, I hope my husband takes time to read my blog. On the other hand, this post might be one he should skip! Let’s see if he mentions it tonight!

Happy stitching; happy hiding your needlepoint obsession from your loved one,
Susan

Grrrrr snow!

Alas the snow storm means The Point of It All will be closed today (Thursday). I’m trying to think of it as a Bonus Stitching Day! So light the fire, pull out a new project, and get to stitching!

If you need help shoveling, I’ll send over my little snow bunny, Betsy!

Stay warm and safe, Susan
