A Friendship Heart

So here is my reveal! :D
Last week I posted the what... Renato Parolin's Magie di Fiori
and now I can tell you the why, when, and where!
I made this pillow for a surprise party for a great friend I have known for over 20 years.  The surprise party was this past Sunday, her lovely daughters gathered all of her friends together and off we went in a stretch limo to spend the day on the East End of Long Island at the vineyards.  
What a fantastic time!  

The last couple weeks have been a little nerve wracking trying to finish, but I luckily did just under the wire!  :D  
I really fell in love with Renato's design.  
I am glad I have found his Italian designs, I love his flower patterns.  
This was a BIG challenge for me, my first pillow ever.  But I think it came out very nice!  :D


...and I added a special quote about friendship and flowers.....



It will be a day to remember for sure.  
I hope my friend will enjoy the design and pillow and remember the special day too for years to come.  

Thanks for visiting!  I really appreciate all of your comments and thoughts.  
Have a wonderful week!  xxxx
