Facelift for a 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
