Description

My daughter lives in Japan and has two very good friends who are getting married in October.  She wanted something different and special to give them as a gift.  After several suggestions, she decided on a cross stitch pattern and asked me to stitch it for her.  I decided to sew it into a neck roll pillow and will be mailing it out to her this weekend.  As it's so expensive to mail items to her I'm letting her stuff the inner pillow form I made to go along with it and hand stitch it closed.  Much love and happiness to Shoko and Luke on their wedding day: October 13, 2013

10/11/13  My daughter changed her mind and gave her the pillow as a shower gift instead of a wedding gift so she could see her open it.  She sent some pictures back so I could see it stuffed and with Shoko opening it, I just wish they were a little clearer.  She said Shoko loved it and also loved that their names are on it.

What a lovely cross stitched verse for the newly weds and the fabric you chose to set it is so elegant. I know they will cherish it. You should ask your daughter to send you a picture of it when she stuffs it and you can post it here as an update.

Thank you, the fabric was something I already had in my stash and I was amazed how well it matched the cross stitch fabric and threads. You read my mind, I have plans on asking her to take some pictures of it one she's finished it on her end.

That's fantastic! Look how thrilled Shoko is with it! You picked some beautiful fabric, and your stitching is impeccable.

Siffstitch Thank you so much for your kind words. I loved her reaction too, it made me smile. When someone really likes what you've made them, it makes the effort so worth it.

And also a brilliant idea to ship it flat!
