    So how is Dave coming along?? Well, I hope.
    Glad you liked the Valentine scripture verse,
    but I can't take credit...I saw it on an email and just thought it was so neat it needed to be shared.
    Hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day with the family.
    Blessings hon, Nellie

  18. Hi Kathy! Thanks for stopping by! Not only did I pop over for a visit, I decided this is my kind of place, so I'm following along now.

  19. Brilliant, Kathy! But then I always knew you were! I love your chair too, with the adorable nest next to it.

    Hope things are going as well as can be expected...still thinking about you often!

    Big Hug

  20. Kathy,

  21. I love your "Nest" pillow. It is so soft and homey and beautiful. You are very clever and smart. It is much more special that you made it instead of buying it from a cookie-cutter store. Keep creating...

  22. I love your pillow better than PB's. Something homemade is much more special to me!
    Thanks for sharing,

  23. Oh that turned out so pretty. It's perfect for your home...much better than the PB version.

  24. Love the pillow. I knew you could figure out how to make a "Nest" pillow. Yours is even better than the original. Candy

  25. That pillow is awesome...and would fit sooo well in my home...where did you find the "rose" ribbon trim you used? I love it! Also, is there directions somewhere on how you downloaded fonts, etc? I am new to this craft thing and haven't worked much using the computer for design...I need some help....everything you make ALWAYS turns out are not only very creative...but so talented as well. Blessings.

  26. Kathy,

    It is adorable. Those soft colors are so you. Was it hard to get the print color to match up with the pillow?

    I can't help but notice how nice your workmanship is. The stitching is so nice.

    That sweater pillow is so unique and an absolutely fabulous find.

    Let's us know about the grand baby. Good to hear Dave is doing well.

    Talk to you soon ;)

  27. Kathy, what a beautiful cushion - like you I am a lover of roses. Please pop over a have a look at my pink rosey breakfast tray..

  28. G'mornin', Kathy,
    This pillow is the CUTEST thing, ever. You are so talented. I DO WISH you'd open an Etsy shop!!! :)
    Was wondering...weren't ya'll moving? Did you move or decide to wait awhile? Just wondering about a new house you might be decorating. You sure know how to decorate!! My "Inspiration File" is full of photos of your sweet and beautiful home!! Now I am on the search for a "PIES MAKES EVERYTHING OK"...!! :O)
    Still praying for your Dave!!
    (I have a Dave, son)

  29. Kathy, Your a genius! I loved those PB pillows when I saw them, but just couldn't bring myself to buy them! Yours is so much nicer. You've inspired me to try it! Can you move next door?
