I was sitting in my chair letting Carol snip and cut my hair. Actually I was paying her to. She has been my hair stylist for over a year now and I just love her. I was sharing with her the fun I'm having with my little shop at Etsy.com and she asked if I did pillows? I've never done a pillow before but I was pretty sure I could handle it until she said she wanted it to be personalize for her grand-daughter. At first I didn't think I could because I don't have an embroidering machine but she was thinking more along the lines of appliqued letters. I said I could totally do that and this is how it turned out.
