Little Cottage Pillow gets some fufu!

Remember the rather plain white pillow that I made?  I asked for your help on how to embellish it and give it some fufu juice.  Well, as always you all had lots of ideas, so this is what I did......

I started making rosettes and adding them to the edges
along with the doilies.....

Whew! It's time consuming making these little
cuties!!!  But, they sure look good.

The last thing that I need in my guestroom/sewing room is
more pillows.  Like I said, I love them, I want them everywhere!
But, this little white number with the rosettes is going
to my booth at Miss Minnies.  I hope someone
loves it as much as I do.

Well, do you like it?

Oh Sissie Sweetie...
I cannot believe that you are going to sale it. No way. Oh my gosh it turned out so elegant and classy. It says "Sissie" all over it. You put that back in your room. Don't you dare take that to your booth at Miss Minnies. I really don't want to have to come out that and give you a really good spanking.

I think you should really give it at least a week, because I think you will be sorry if you take it down there. Once it is gone, you can't get it back.

Oh Sissie girl, I don't know about you. What am I going to do?

Have a beautiful evening sweetie. Love ya girl...Country hugs,Sherry

Oh, it's so pretty! There are lots of pillow lovers out there, so I'm sure someone will snatch it up. It's always so hard to know what to sell and what to keep. Well, you can always make another one, right?

Hi Sissie,

I don't just like it...I LOVE it! I'd get in my car and drive to NC and pick that beauty up, but I wouldn't get there until next Wednesday and not doubt it will be gone in a hot second!

I'm with an Etsy shop so I can get my greedy little hands on some of your beauties...pretty please!

Love and hugs,
