A Long Overdue Show and Tell

I have been stalking the Pillow Talk Swap on Flickr for some time and finally got brave enough to participate in round 9 last year. You might remember that I sent this pillow to Lara in New Zealand.

Pillow Talk Swap 9

I patiently anxiously waited for the post man to bring my pillow and when it arrived in December, I was up to my ears in Christmas preparations, celebrations and sick with a sinus infection and forgot to show you what Aylin sent me, all the way from Germany. She certainly got the color and fabrics picked just perfectly for my tastes. I love this pillow! I need to try making this block soon.

She also made me the cutest little zippered coin purse.



I would say my first experience in the Pillow Talk swap was a really good one and I look forward to participating in another round.
