A new fabulous pillow arrived today! This crab cake canvas from Melissa Shirley was already adorable but the finishing really put it over the top! I used seersucker fabric that is doubled-faced with orange linen. Laura, finisher extraordinaire, added a beaded trim, cute ties, and shell embellishments. I love it! And can't wait to give it to my husband (who, as a true son of Maryland, loves crabs).

I'm off to the needlework market tomorrow...I promise to buy tons of wonderful canvases for the shop!

Happy stitching,
