embroidered pillows


i took some time to do a little window shopping in my favorite PB catalogs, and when i spied these pillows, i immediately knew they would be the next entry in my pottery barn journal.  i've always had a real soft spot for satin-stitching and french knots......and i don't think a girl could ever have too many embroidered pillows!  they're the perfect thing to surround yourself with as you're lounging on the couch......with your feet up on the coffee table......while you're watching your favorite movie......and eating a chocolate bar.....or two...... :)))

i hope you have a relaxing surrounded-by-embroidered-pillows kind of weekend!!

love this page...love the pillows too...can you believe that I embroidered some pillows years ago and had them for years and on one move they came up "missing"...right, some moving guy probably has them on his couch to this day....gggrrrr...atleast his couch looks good:)

Lori, What a beautiful page! Pillows are just so comforting and when they are hand-stitched they are that much more precious. If I could only figure out how to have a pen/paintbrush in one hand, a needle and thread in the other - where will the chocolate fit in?!? Have a fabulous weekend! xoxo, Jeanette

Great page, pottery barn certainly is doing us all a favour! Hope to do some snuggling this weekend - going away to our caravan - bad weather forecast but the changing views are worth it! Have a great weekend yourself, Chrisx

Today, I just saw some of my friends embroidered pillows on facebook and they were awesome! She doesn't sell them--but then, they are a work of art with ribbon embroidery, satin stiches, french knots, lace and buttons! I'm going to have to make me one!!!

"sigh" how fabulous is this page. Maybe you should let the Pottery Barn have a look at your version of their catalogue. They might want you to illustrate the next one lol
Forever amazed, Margaret xx

gorgeous... I have to say, I like Lori's version of PB even better than the original. LOVE the colors- luscious!

If Pottery Barn were totally smart they would hire you to illustrate their next catalog! You really bring interest to the subject. Love your PB Journal dear. Blissful weekend to you...
