The summer I moved to NYC I spent a few weeks at my parent's house transitioning from grad school in Texas to full time employee in NYC. Anyone who has spent more than a few hours with my mom knows that any type of down time can be filled with crafting. So that summer I started embroidering a pillow top. I'd made some good process, but soon I moved to NYC and only picked up my project on some cold winter nights. Finally last year (four years after I had started) I finished the embroidery work, but then the top sat in a bag for another year. Now it is finally finished! It's my 5 year pillow. Now that I live in DC I should start a DC 5 year pillow.
As I was finishing up the pillow I came across some fabric I had purchased in NYC and since I had some pillow filling left I decided to sew up another pillow. The second pillow is my 1 hour pillow.
I think they both look great on my couch.
