My first pillow

 It has been over a month since my last blog. I may not be sharing what I am working on but I have been busy. Both of my Connecting Threads quilts have been quilted and I just need to hand sew the binding on. I just finished quilting the Central park quilt this afternoon (my parents were sweet enough to take the boys for a few hours so I could finish it). I am hoping to get the binding sewn to the front tonight yet. I did get one more stocking done (This time I quilted the back too - I like it much better than just the piece of fabric, but am not going to tear my first one apart).

So now to my embroidery/quilting project that I am sooooo in love with. My youngest drew this person about about a month ago. I have been seeing people blog about embroidering their kids artwork so I decided to do that with person. Below is the pillow that I made it into.

 I am so proud of it. He has only seen the embroidery part. We are celebrating his 5th birthday this coming weekend and will surprise him with the pillow. I might have to embroider another person just for me! I am trying to convince my oldest to let me do a piece of his artwork but he thinks it is lame. So I might have to sneak something with out him finding out!

This is so darn cute- Something to have for a long time. I have always let my children choose one piece of art that I frame and hang gallery style in their rooms. My teenager still has his first and second grade pictures hanginf. Your idea is such a great and creative extension of your child's art. I'm sure they will be thrilled to see their art in such a spectacular setting.
